Waxing Gibbous: most of the moon's surface is illuminated except for a small sliver on the left side that remains in the dark. It is almost fully illuminated.

Waning Crescent: only a small sliver of the moon is still illuminated on the left side. It is just about to "disappear" completely.

Full Moon: the entire side of the moon facing the Earth is illuminated. It looks perfectly round.

First Quarter: the right half of the moon is illuminated. In the next phase the moon will seem even larger.

Last Quarter: the left half of the moon is illuminated

New Moon: the side of the moon facing the Earth is not illuminated. We cannot see the moon at this phase.
