Blog Toy: Moon Phases Calculator

These days the weather has been anything but nice. In the days, the heavy showers are unforgiving, and the nights, cloudy and cold; Hardly any good for moon gazing. Because bloggers hardly see natural light and breathe real air outside, they can now install a moon phase blog toy on their blogs, to moon gaze.



Using raw moon data, and the time of your computer's clock, the moon phase data is calculated, and displayed in an image, with percentage values. To understand the fancy descriptions given to the various moon phases, perhaps a short excerpt will help:

The sun always illuminates the half of the moon facing the sun (except during lunar eclipses, when the moon passes thru the earth's shadow). When the sun and moon are on opposite sides of the earth, the moon appears "full" to us, a bright, round disk. When the moon is between the earth and the sun, it appears dark, a "new" moon. In between, the moon's illuminated surface appears to grow (wax) to full, then decreases (wanes) to the next new moon.
