The crescent moon in the western sky looked like a backward C. So, was it moving toward fullness or newness?
Taking the picture with my little camera is tricky. I played around, but mostly I kept getting too much light and so you couldn't see the crescent.
I finally got it by setting it on automatic, night.
So, is it waxing or waning?
There are lots of websites that answer that question, but most of them are pretty complicated. Or maybe this one (below) made sense because I'd seen so many already. This is from eudesign:
"When Coming (or rriving), it is really departing.
When Departing ( ), it is really coming."
Another way of telling is this:L-E-FT hand curve = D-E-CREASING.
R-I-GHT hand curve = -I-NCREASING.
