The Moon Phases : The Moon Phases *By ?? ??* Choose A Moon : Choose A Moon Full Moon : Full Moon At a full moon, the earth, moon, and sun are in approximate alignment, just as the new moon, but the moon is on the opposite side of the earth, so the entire sunlit part of the moon is facing us. The shadowed portion is entirely hidden from view. Back to chose a moon Waning Gibbous : Waning Gibbous The waning gibbous Moon is just past full and illuminated generally from the left. This phase of the Moon is seen to rise a little while after sunset. The Moon is in this phase for nearly a week between full and third quarter. For a few days or so after Full Moon the waning gibbous Moon appears nearly full and might be mistaken for a full Moon. back Third Quarter : Third Quarter The Third Quarter moon(often called a "half moon"), happens when the moon is at a 90 degree angle with the earth and sun. So we are seeing exactly half of the moon illuminated and half in shadow. back Waning Crescent : Waning Crescent Following the third quarter is the waning crescent, which wanes until the light is completely gone -- a new moon. back New Moon : New Moon The new moon occurs when the moon is positioned between the earth and sun. The three objects are in approximate alignment (why "approximate" is explained below). The entire illuminated portion of the moon is on the back side of the moon, the half that we cannot see. back Waxing Crescent : Waxing Crescent After the new moon, the sunlit portion is increasing, but less than half, so it is waxing crescent. back First Quarter : First Quarter In this phase, the Moon sets at midnight. In a crystal clear sky, you can even see the first quarter Moon a few hours before sunset in the southeast. back Waxing Gibbous : Waxing Gibbous After the first quarter, the sunlit portion is still increasing, but now it is more than half, so it is waxing gibbous. back
