New Moon

New moon is the moment when the Sun and Moon are in conjunction, meaning that the Sun and Earth are on the opposite sides of the Moon. New moon cannot normally be seen from the Earth, however, since only the dark side of the Moon faces the Earth.

First Quarter Moon

Half the Moon is illuminated, as seen from Earth during the first quarter. The Moon rises near the middle of the day and sets near the middle of the night.

Full Moon

Full moon appears when the Sun and the Moon are on opposite sides of the Earth. As seen from Earth, all of the Moon's surface will be visible. The full moon is visible approximately from sunset to sunrise.

Third Quarter Moon

The third quarter moon occurs when the other half of the Moon is illuminated compared to the first quarter. On the day of third quarter, the Moon rises approximately in the middle of the night and sets in the middle of the day.
