In this part or type of the moon cycle, it is getting very closer and closer to the Sun as viewed from the Earth and the night-side of the Moon is facing earth with a decreasingly thin crescent being illuminated.
The waning and or shrinking crescent Moon will rise at around midnight, transit the meridian after sunrise, before setting after noon. This moon phase is best viewed 1 – 2 hours before sunrise and is a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface.
Along the illuminated crescent you can see the craters, nature and mountains of the moon casting long shadows.
The Waxing Gibbous moon phase, like all moon phases, will last for just over 7 days. The actual length will vary because of the elliptical shaped orbit of the moon. During this Waxing Gibbous moon phase, the moon will rise in the east in the mid-to-late-afternoon and will be high in the eastern sky at sunset.
Assuming it’s a clear night, the Waxing Gibbous moon phase will then be visible through most of the night before setting just before sunrise.
