How to tell if the moon is moving toward a Full Moon phase?
Just remember the dwarf DOC. If the moon is shaped like a D, its moving to a full moon. If its shaped like a C, its moving toward a new moon.
New Moon –
First Quarter – Shaped like the letter D
Full – Shaped like the letter O
Waning Crescent – Shaped like the letter C
Notes – The moon takes 29.53 days to orbit the earth. & the DOC phrase only works in the northern hemisphere. It’s COD in the southern hemisphere
