Moon Waxing Gibbous – From Last Night

Waxing Gibbous


A Waxing Gibbous Moon is when more than half of the moon is lighted but less than full.

After the new moon, the sunlit portion is increasing, but less than half, so it is waxing crescent. After the first quarter, the sunlit portion is still increasing, but now it is more than half, so it iswaxing gibbous. After the full moon (maximum illumination), the light continually decreases. So the waning gibbous phase occurs next. Following the third quarter is the waning crescent, which wanes until the light is completely gone — a new moon. via MoonConnection
