Today, the moon is 2 days old.
Growing up, my mother frequently warned us about the effects of the notorious, full moon. With every approaching day, she would attest to its abilities to increase her appetite and escalate her neurosis. While I do not experience the same tribulation, the moon’s shape transfixes me. The gradual and expected shifts enhance the night sky, and provide an unexpected measure of time. This website brings this natural clock to a digital platform, changing layouts with every lunar phase.
The website provides something equally gradual and expected to anticipate.

The next phase begins on December 18.

The lunar phase is the shape of the illuminated (sunlit) portion of the moon as seen by an observer on Earth.
