Lunar Phases


Description: This applet displays the current phase of the moon and the time/date of the next four major lunar phases. The current age of the moon, its distance and apogee/perigee dates are also displayed. All times displayed are in UT except for the clock which displays the local time. Lunarphases is a good tool for moon observers. Also a helper for those of you who are influenced by the moon, just check out the full moon time to prepare better.
