Waxing Crescent Moon — This image by

Waxing Crescent Moon — This image by Jeff Barton is of the Moon, about 7 days after New Moon. We like to view the Moon during the growing crescent to Gibbous phase because the shadows make the surface features show up very well. The smallest crater you can see in this image is a few miles across. The large, round, gray feature near the left edge of the Moon in this photo is Mare Crisium, which is very nearly the same size as the state of Oklahoma.
