Phases of the Moon
The links below are tables that give the dates and times of the Moon's phases (New Moon, First Quarter,
Full Moon and Last Quarter) for five time zones throughout the 21st Century.
Moonrise and Moonset
A "Moonscape" is an image of the Moon with an Earthly foreground (trees, mountains, buildings, etc.). In other words, it is a landscape that features the Moon.
When the Moon is in the crescent phase, we can often see the rest of the Moon lite in a dull blue-gray glow called earthshine. This illumination is actually sunlight first reflected off the Earth, then to the Moon where it is reflected back.
