You are giving an incorrect description of the phases of the moon. There is no third quarter, there are only two moon quarters.

Thank you Mieczyslaw, for your comment. Indeed only two phases of the moon are called “quarters” – the first quarter and last quarter, which is also known as the third quarter due to its being three quarters of the way along its orbit. The text has been revised to clarify this.

Thank you again for taking the time to help make NWE a valuable information resource.
