MOON WITCH

Two trick-or-treaters, Billy and Diana, venture out on Halloween night in search of candy.   As they walk through the neighborhood, Billy scares Diana will tales of the child-eating Moon witch!    The terrified Diana demands to return home, where she is comforted by her mother.

For the remainder of the evening, Diana and her Mom discover how wonderful the Moon truly is:  from its changing shape (phases), the way it seems to follow you in the sky, and even why it appears large on the horizon.
