8 Phases of The Moon
what causes the phases of the moon
What Causes the Phases of the Moon?
  • The moons does not glow, it reflects light from the sun. This is why the moon appears to shine bright.
  • The part of the moon facing the sun is always lit up. The part facing away from the sun is always dark.
  • The different phases depend on how much of the sunlit side of the moon faces Earth.

FULL MOON

new moon
The moon is not visible from Earth. The moon is between the Sun and the Earth.
  • The dark side is facing us.
  • This phase lasts one night.
New Moon
waxing crescent
Waxing means that the bright side is increasing. The right side is the bright side.
  • Less than one half of the moon is lit up.
  • This phase includes any visible moon from a small sliver to almost half.
Waxing Crescent
first quarter or half moon
The entire right side of the moon is lit up.
  • The moon looks like a half circle.
  • The lit up side is increasing.
  • This phase only lasts one night.
First Quarter or Half Moon
waxing gibbous
Gibbous means that more than one half is visible, but it is not quite full.
  • This phase includes the night after the first quarter to the night before the full moon.
Waxing Gibbous
full moon
The moon is full and bright. It looks like a large circle.
  • The lit up side is facing us.
  • Only happens one night per lunation (moon phase cycle).
Full Moon
waning gibbous
The moon appears more than half but not quite full.
  • Waning means that the lit up side is decreasing.
  • The left side is the bright side.
Waning Gibbous
3 rd quarter or last quarter half moon
Left Half of the moon is lit.
  • The lit side is decreasing.
  • This phase also only lasts for one night.
3rd Quarter or Last Quarter/ Half Moon
waning crescent
Less than one half of the moon is lit up.
  • The moon will continue to become smaller and smaller.
