Is the Moon Waxing or Waning?

Remember D, O, C. In the Northern hemisphere, the moon always follows this illumination pattern. During the first quarter (waxing), the moon will look like a D. When it’s full, it will look like an O. And when it’s in the last quarter (waning), it will look like a C. If you’re in the Southern hemisphere, remember C, O, D instead.

      Hi Magicsia,
      If the moon phase starts at 8:45 am, then wait until that night and do it when the sun sets. Each phase lasts for about 3 days so you will have plenty of time.
      Good luck and blessings!
