Full Phases of the Moon
If you want to see different between a new moon and full moon, then you need to be well versed with the various phases of this natural satellite. The four major phases of the moon are as, initial one is New Moon - wherein the Moon appears as a narrow waxing crescent, First Quarter - wherein one half of the Moon is visible, Full Moon - wherein the Moon is fully illuminated, and the end part is known as Last Quarter - wherein one half of the moon is visible. Basically, a new moon is the lunar phase wherein the Sun, Moon and the earth come in a straight line - with the Moon in between the Sun and Earth in such a manner that the dark portion of the moon faces the Earth.
As a result of this, the moon is not visible from the Earth with the naked eye during the new moon day. The full moon, on the other hand, is the lunar phase wherein the Earth is in between and sun and moon lie on either side. As a result of this, the Suns light gets reflected on the face of the moon which is facing the Earth and it gets illuminated - thus making the moon appear bright in nature.
