Optical image of a waxing gibbous moon

Waxing gibbous Moon. Optical image of a waxing gibbous Moon. A gibbous Moon is one showing over half the surface. The Moon is said to wax when it is increasing in apparent size. The Moon's phases start with a new Moon, progress through to a full Moon via this gibbous phase, and then reduce to a new Moon again. One cycle takes around 28 days. The phases of the Moon are due to its orbit around Earth. When it lies in between the Earth and the Sun, only the unlit side faces us (new Moon). When it has moved round so that the Earth lies between it and the Sun, we see the full lit face, a full Moon. North is at top. For the sequence of the Moon's phases, see images R340/526-532

Optical image of a waning half moon Featured 28 May 1998 Image

Optical image of a waning half moon

Waning half Moon. Optical image of a waning half Moon. The Moon is said to wane when it is diminishing in apparent size. This stage in the phases of the Moon is known as the third quarter. The Moon's phases start with a new Moon, progress to the first quarter (a waxing half Moon), reach a full Moon, and then continue through to a new Moon again via a third quarter. One cycle takes around 28 days. The phases of the Moon are due to its orbit around Earth. When it lies in between the Earth and the Sun, the unlit side faces us (a new Moon). When the Earth lies between it and the Sun, we see a full Moon. North is at top. For the sequence of the Moon's phases, see R340/526-532
