Crescent Moon from Earth orbit, computer artwork. The night side of the Moon is being illuminated by sunlight reflected from the Earth, a phenomenon known as "Earthshine". The Moon's phases are seen as it moves into and out of the light of the Sun as it orbits the Earth. The thin blue haze seen along the Earth's limb is its atmosphere, which fades out into space around 100 kilometres above the surface.
