Moon Phase Information

New Moon
new moon
 
The New Moon is observed when the moon is directly in line with the Sun and Earth.  The moon is interfering with the lighted side of the Earth and therefore cannot be seen by an observer on Earth because the moon's dark side is facing Earth.  Occasionally the moon's orbit will intersect the Earth's plane of revolution, which is called a node position and is in a perfect line between the Earth and the Sun.  When this occurs, a viewer on Earth will observe the Sun slowly disappear because the moon obscures the Sun from view. This unusual occurrence is called a solar eclipse.
New Crescent

The New Crescent phase is the second phase.  The New Crescent Moon appears approximately 2.66 days after the new moon. During this phase, the moon is still very close in line with the sun, therefore, by the time the sky is dark enough to see the moon it is very low in the west.
First Quarter
first quarter moon
 
When the First Quarter moon is visible this means the moon is directly in line so that the Earth and moon both are getting the same amount of sunlight.  An observer from Earth sees a half moon, therefore, the moon's side that is facing the Sun is observed on Earth and the other half of the moon is facing away from the Sun and is unable to be seen from Earth.
New Gibbous
new gibbous moon
The New Gibbous, or sometimes referred to as the Waxing Gibbous, is the fourth phase of the moon observed from Earth, or the last phase before the moon becomes full.  The New Gibbous phase usually last between two and three days before the full moon is exalted.
Full Moon
full moon
 
The Full Moon is observed when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are in a straight line and the moon's lighted side is behind the Earth in alignment with the sun.  During the full moon phase, the moon rises high off the horizon.  At this time, the details of the moon are most visible.  Once in a while the moon will orbit on a node.  At this time the moon is perfectly in line with the Earth and gradually becomes shadowed so it is not visible on Earth. Soon the moon will gradually orbit out of the shadow of the Earth and once again become visible. This phenomenon is referred to as a lunar eclipse.
