What does it mean the moon is waxing?


2 Answers

A waxing moon is any phase of the moon during the lunar cycle between the new moon and the full moon. A waxing moon is one, that is getting larger each night. The lunar cycle is a period of about 29 days, as the moon's shape seems to change from our vantage point on Earth.

Waxing of the moon means that it is in the phase where it is growing with light until a full moon is reached.
