What are the phases of the moon?

The four primary lunar phases are the new moon, the first quarter, the full moon, and the last quarter.

A new moon is the first lunar phase, which occurs on average about once a month or 29.53 days. The moon itself is not visible, though you may be able to “see” it because it blocks the visibility of the stars behind it.

A full moon occurs when the Earth is directly between the Sun and the Moon, allowing the moon to appear illuminated entirely. It happens about once a month, or 29.53 days on average.

The first quarter moon occurs between the new moon and the full moon, and the last quarter moon occurs after the full moon and before the next new moon.
