lunar phases to cut your hair in october

It is possible to observe the different phases of the Moon thanks to the relative position of the Moon, the Sun and the Earth; this determines that a greater or lesser fraction of it is seen. The Moon is a rocky object that has no atmosphere and does not emit light, much like a rock in a meadow.

When you look at the sky and observe the Moon, you only see a rock; however, it is possible to see luminosity there, since at that time it is illuminated by the Sun, which is why it is not possible to control which part of the Moon to see.

The Moon revolves around the Earth. When the Sun, Earth and Moon are aligned, from Earth it is possible to see the Moon completely illuminated and this is called a full moon. When the order of alignment is Sun, Moon and Earth, it is impossible to see the face that illuminates the Sun and this is called a new moon. The intermediate positions correspond to what is called the waxing or waning moon.

The crescent Moon is seen when a fraction of the Moon’s face is most illuminated. The crescent moon is seen in the Northern Hemisphere as a D (right-lit arc) and in the Southern Hemisphere as a C (left-lit arc).

The Moon is in a waning or waning phase when only part of it is visible in the sky. In the northern hemisphere, the waning moon is considered a C-shape, while in the southern hemisphere it is considered a D-shape. Moon phases have been used to create calendars. In Babylon, they measured time with the lunar months.
