Still image from Moon Phases

The portion of the moon that can be seen from Earth on any given night is called the moon's phase. As the moon orbits around the Earth, sunlight is reflected off the moon's surface and that light reaches the Earth. The phase of the moon depends on where the moon is in its orbit.
