Information and conceptual explanation about the full moon calendar

New moon

The exact time, when the moon goes from waning to waxing.
At new moon, the moon is between the earth and the sun.

The moon typically becomes visible 17-36 hours after new moon.

First quarter

The exact time, where the moon is perpendicular on the distance from the earth to the moon.
"First" describes it is the first time after new moon.

Full moon

The exact time, where the moon goes from waxing to waning.
The earth is between the sun and the moon, and the moon is 100% illuminated.

Last quarter

The exact time, where the moon is perpendicular on the distance from the earth to the moon.
"Last" describes it is the last time this happens, in this moon phase cycle.

Times of the phases

The moon phases happens at the same time, all over earth (though in different time zones).

Waxing / Waning

It is easy to spot if the moon is waxing or waning.
On the northern hemisphere: If the right side of the moon is illuminated, then it is waxing.
On the southern hemisphere: If the left side of the moon is illuminated, then it is waxing.
Equator: If the bottom of the moon is illuminated, then it is waxing.
Sometimes the moon is waxing from the bottom on the northern and southern hemisphere. A phenomena that happens once or twice a year.

Accuracy

The times are calculated, with an accuracy of one minute.
