The phases of the moon

By Indiana Albers

What difference between quarters

Well the difference between the first and third quarter moon phases Is that the first quarter is a waxing phase and the third quarter is a waning phase. Now you may be wondering what waxing and waning mean. A waxing phase is a phase that leads up to a full moon. These are the phases that look like their gaining light. Waning phases are the phase that occur after the full moon and before a new moon. These are the phases that look like their losing light.
