    That is how the moonrise looked on Friday but I’ll admit I didn’t know it was a waning gibbous. We live and learn.

    Was there a song about waxing gibbons? It would be a real teat jerker.

    my comment is regarding Janis. she missed the whole point altogether. He experienced it LIVE and personal and she could have been WITH him making a memory that would last longer than reading the pages of a book that she might be able to pick up any time. The moment will not repeat itself. Time moves forwards and you cannot return to that point in time. When Arlo is gone she will wish she had those moments when she was sitting outside with him in marvel to experience a waning Gibbous moon…never mind that someone never wrote a love song about a waning gibbous moon, not yet they haven’t <3

    And here I thought Arlo was an early riser and would have already been snoozing away before the waning gibbous showed itself.

    This isn’t like Janis. Lately she’s been ignoring Arlo and being bossy. What’s going on J.J.?

    It is amazing just how bright the night sky can be-even with a new moon-when you are far enough away from cities that you can no longer see their light pollution on the horizon.

    Maybe Arlo is a fan of the moonrise and moonset site. (Copy and paste the URL, and then remove spaces. Once there, look up a location.)

    Actually, that isn’t true. When in high school, a friend of mine and I (upon learning that there actually is something called a “waning gibbous moon”) composed the following (more or less to the tune of “When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder”):

    Oh, the moon is waning gibbous! Oh, the moon is waning gibbous! Oh, the moon is waning gibbous, but my heart is full of love. For you.

    How Arlo knows this, I have no clue.

    As a child I was taught new moon, waxing quarter-moon, waxing half-moon, full moon, waning half, etc.

    Still haven’t, I fear, learned the “gibbous” stuff; I really should.

    Maybe. But that’s been so many sonnets and songs about the moon and they may have been thinking about a Gibbous Moon…..

    From the look on his face, I’d guess Arlo’s gibbous is waxing.

    I was born under a waning gibbous. My younger son and husband were both born under full moons, and the older was born under a half moon.

    gibbous comes from Latin hunchbacked or bulge. Personally, a waning (or waxing) gibbous looks to me like it’s squished a bit, not bulging or humped. Waning gibbous is when it was full, and part is shadowed or missing – betwen full and half moon. Waxing gibbous it is almost full, except for a part is missing – between half and full.

    Between new and half or between half and new is crescent, waxing or waning, respectively.

    Throughout the cycle, the moon will be waxing each day, or increasing how much of it you can see lit up at night, then waning, or decreasing in size until it disappears.
