2. Beautiful, mysterious, almost scary....no wonder ancient people worshiped it.

Thanks, CaliforniaPeggy.

6. Thank you so much, my dear Glorfindel!

It truly is all those things, and even though I've taken many photos, I still feel a grand sense of awe when I look at it.

9. Beautiful "newish" crescent moon setting over the Pacific Ocean.

Thanks for posting. It is raining where I live, so it is nice for me to see the moon which now is near the beginning of its lunation (cycle of phases). However, Peggy, I do not think the term "gibbous" applies. I think that term applies to the fuller phases. I look forward to seeing more pictures of yours. Take care!

12. Thank you, John!

I just looked up the term "gibbous" and this moon is not that. It does apply to the fuller phases. I guess crescent fits the best.

Nonetheless, I'm glad you enjoyed seeing my photo, no matter what I call it.
