ASTR 109 Moon Problems (Hamilton)

A few more Moon problems ...

1. If the Moon is 1/2 full and visible in the evening, is it waxing (becoming more full) or waning (becoming less full)? When is the earliest possible eclipse? What type of eclipse would it be?

2. If the Moon is a very thin crescent, at what time(s) can it rise (choose from midnight, noon, dawn, dusk).

3. If it is 6am and the Moon is straight up, what is its phase?
