A Waxing Gibbous Moon

Waxing essentially mean " growing " or expanding in illumination..As the moon waxes, the moon is then said to wane as it passes through the gibbous moon, third-quarter moon, crescent moon and back to new moon. Once the Moon's angle exceeds 90 degrees, that's when it enters the waxing gibbous phase. At 180 degrees from the Sun, the Moon is fully illuminated.
