Graphic of Phases of the Moon

A lunar stage or stage of the moon is the manifestation of the lit up (sunlit) divide of the Moon as viewed by a spectator, generally on Earth. The lunar stages update cyclically as the Moon circles the Earth, as per the adapting relative positions of the Earth, Moon, and Sun.

The part of the lunar surface challenging the Sun is continuously sunlit, anyway the allotment of this lit up side of the equator that is obvious to an eyewitness on Earth can shift from about 100% (full moon) to 0% (unique moon).
