Waxing crescent Moon above The Lions, twin peaks in the North Shore Mountains, north of Vancouver, Canada. At this stage the Moon is halfway between a new Moon and the first quarter (half Moon). The phases of the moon (new Moon, first quarter, full Moon and then back to new Moon) are due to its orbit around the Earth. Each cycle takes around 28 days.
