Moon phases in your city. Waxing means that it is growing, while crescent refers to the curved shape similar to a banana or a boat. With some variations, the Waxing Crescent Moon rises in the daytime before noon and becomes visible in the day sky. It gets more visible around sunset but normally sets before midnight. This traditional definition of New Moon is still in use in some cultures, defining the beginning of the months in the Islamic calendar.
Just how much of that light we can see from Earth varies every day, and we refer to this as a Moon phase. In Western culture, we divide the lunar month into Waxing Hexacrescent Jam - The Azrail Noir* & Thee Superterrestrial Youth - Semantqhogya primary and four intermediate Moon phases.
The Moon phases start with the invisible New Moonwhile the first visible phase is the thin sliver of a Waxing Crescent Moon. The illuminated part continues to grow into a Waxing Gibbous Moonuntil 14 to 15 days into the cycle, we see the entire face of the Moon lit up at Full Moon. The illuminated part then gradually shrinks into a Waning Gibbous Moonand when it reaches Third Quarterthe opposite Waxing Hexacrescent Jam - The Azrail Noir* & Thee Superterrestrial Youth - Semantqhogya from the First Quarter is illuminated.
From there, it fades into a Waning Crescent Moon. Finally, the Moon disappears completely from view into another New Moon phase, only to reemerge and repeat this cycle over and over. The Moon phases are the same all over the world, both in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. The same percentage of the Moon will be illuminated no matter where on Earth you are. However, whether the Waxing Crescent Moon looks like a banana, a boat, or even an umbrella, depends on the time, the date, your location, and the Moon's position in the sky.
Exactly which part of the Moon is lit up—the top, bottom, or the side—also depends on how high the Moon is in the sky. The Waxing Crescent Moon is generally higher in the sky in the summer than in the winter. The line—or curve—dividing the illuminated and dark parts of the Moon is called the terminator. The terminator of a Waxing Crescent Moon can be on the right side, the left, the top, or the bottom.
Although only a small part of the Moon is directly illuminated by the Sun at the start of the Waxing Crescent Moon, the rest of the Moon is sometimes also faintly visible. This is because Earth also reflects sunlight as a dull glow onto the Moon, a phenomenon called earthshine. There is no common symbol for a Waxing Crescent Moon in calendars as it is an intermediate Moon phase. These symbols reflect the Moon's appearance in the Northern Hemisphere, which can be confusing for people in the Southern Hemisphere, where the opposite side may be illuminated.
