It's just a phase

Just because I may want to find this factoid again:

Phases of the Moon

There are eight phases of the Moon:
New (dark);
Crescent;
First Quarter;
Gibbous;
Full;
Disseminating;
Last (third) Quarter;
Balsamic.

Oh, yeah, and a lunar month is 29.53 days long, so each phase lasts 3.69 days.
