it's because of the way the sun is reflected off the moon..<br><br>
If the earth is between the sun and the moon, it's a lunar eclipse, and the moon is like....a tiny ring...<br><br>
I think...<br><br>
The first part I know is true.<br><br>
EDIT:<br>
ahaha. 2 nights in a row!

half of the moon is illuminated at any given time (unless there is a solar? eclipse) and you can see half of the moon at any given time at night. The moon appears to be different shapes in correlation to the amount of the illuminated side that you can see.
