The Moon Phases Explained:
Waxing Crescent: Comes after new Moon. The bright portion of the Moon is increasing, but is less than half (or first quarter).
First Quarter: Sometimes called "Half-Moon", this happens when the Moon is at a 90 degree angle with the Earth and the Sun. Half of the Moon is bright and half is dark.
Full: Sun, Moon and Earth are aligned with the Moon on the opposite side of the Earth, so it is fully bright to us.
Last Quarter: Sometimes called "Half-Moon", this happens when the Moon is at a 90 degree angle with the Earth and the Sun. Half of the Moon is bright and half is dark.
Waning Crescent: The bright portion of the moon is decreasing, and is less than half (last quarter). Comes before new Moon.
