What does a waxing crescent moon look like?

How long does it last?


Answer by  ilopez (6)

The crescent moon looks like the smile of the Cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland; if his head were turned sideways his dimples would face away from the sun. Since the moon has 8 phases over a 29.5 day period a little bit more of the moon can be seen everyday.
