Subject: Waxing vs. Waning
The moon appears to increase (waxing) at a much faster rate. Now that the moon is decreasing (waning) it doesn't seem as visible to the naked eye. As the moon changed from crescent to gibbous, I was able to see the change no matter how small. The moon was full on Saturday, it has been difficult to observe the changes. It still appears full. Is my eyesight going? Do I need to get into the eye doctor?
