What is the difference between waxing and waning?
Waxing means getting bigger which means getting closer to being a full moon.
Waning means getting smaller which means getting closer to being a new moon.
Why do we see moon phases from earth but not from space?
The sun always has light on one half of the moon. The moon’s appearance changes through the month because different portions of its sunlit half are visible from Earth.
