Finally, the moon moves back to its new moon starting position. A week after new moon, the moon is 90 degrees away from the sun in the sky and is half-illuminated from our point of view, what we call first quarter because it is about a quarter of the way around Earth. A few days later, the area of illumination continues to increase. Usually the moon passes above or below the sun from our vantage point, but occasionally it passes right in front of the sun, and we get an eclipse of the sun. When the moon has moved degrees from its new moon position, the sun, Earth and the moon form a line. The sun's light is now shining on the other half of the visible face of the moon. This thin sliver is called the waxing crescent. Finally, the moon moves back to its new moon starting position. It also takes about 27 days for the moon to rotate on its axis. This phase is called a waxing gibbous the full date.
