The phases of the moon are caused by a different portion of the lit side of the moon facing the Earth. As the moon orbits the Earth, a different portion of the sunlit side faces the Earth. At a new moon, none of this side of the moon is visible. This results in a completely black moon in the night sky. At the full moon, the entire sunlight side is visible.
As the moon transitions from new moon to full moon, it is referred to as waxing. The sunlit side is becoming more visible. As the moon transitions from full moon to new moon it is referred to as waning. The sunlit side is becoming less visible.
All of the phases of the moon are listed to the left. Each phase lasts about 7.4 days. They lengths vary slightly because of the moon's orbits slightly elliptical shape.
