April 4 Moon Goddess’ Current Moon Phase

SATURDAY, APRIL 4, 2020

On this day, the Moon will be in a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the Moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The period lasts around 7 days, with the Moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous, the Moon will rise in the east in mid-afternoon and will be high in the eastern sky at sunset. The Moon is then visible though most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus,” meaning humpbacked.
