Resources for PAT preparation

Hello, I am trying to prepare for the Physics Aptitude exam and many of the past papers I've been using have questions on the moon cycle, orbits and moon phases. The problem is, I can't find any resources on this topic in particular, can anyone advise any?

Would you also mind linking any resources you feel will help with the exam?

I took it quite a while ago now, but I just went through the past paper questions and understood the previous questions on the moon cycle/phases. If you do this you will very likely have the prerequisite knowledge for unseen questions.

The most useful three resources I used when preparing were:
1) PAT past papers (obviously): https://www.physicsandmathstutor.com/admissions/pat/
2) BPhO (for similar physics questions): https://www.bpho.org.uk/past-papers/round-1
3) Senior Kangaroo (for similar maths questions): https://www.ukmt.org.uk/competitions/solo/senior-kangaroo/archive

Good luck!!
