Assunto:  Moon phases

1) new moon (you cannot see the moon, it's completely dark)

2) crescent (anything less than a quarter moon)

3) first quarter

4) gibbous (anything larger than a quarter moon)

5) half moon

6) third quarter

7) full moon


As more of the moon is seen, it's said to be waxing.

As less of the moon is seen. it's said to be waning.


Therefore, a waxing gibbous is larger than a first quarter moon and will look larger tomorrow.  A waning half moon will look smaller tomorrow.
