Can you read the moon?
The #moon has 8 phases which begin with the first phase called, New moon, where it is completely covered in shadow. The next seven phases occur with light, moving from the right side of the moon, to the left.
Each of these movements are named, with the #fullmoon being the most recognized phase of all.
The phases after a full moon are called, #Waning , because Earth’s shadow begins to cover more of the moon.
In all, it takes the moon 29.5 days to complete an eight phase cycle. This is called a #Synodic , or Lunar month.
