Caption

2 Day Old waxing crescent Moon , with earthshine. Image 2 of 27. Image of a waxing (increasing in apparent size) crescent Moon 2 days into its 28-day cycle. The lunar phases arise as the Moons orbit of the Earth shows the Earth-facing side moving into and out of the light of the Sun. This Earth-facing side of the Moon is locked in place by the gravitational influence of the Earth. This results in a lunar day that equals the length of the lunar Earth orbit. On a waxing Moon the day-night line (terminator) marks the lunar dawn. The Moon is crescent when it is less than half full.
