Caption

Waning crescent Moon. As the Moon orbits the Earth, the amount of sunlight on its visible hemisphere varies in a regular 28-day cycle. This is a waning crescent Moon, 26 days into the cycle. As the cycle progresses, darkness encroaches (from left) as the lunar night falls. Photographed in the southern hemisphere.
