AnswerRainfall is not affected by the phases of the moon.

Rainfall is affected by local weather conditions such as lows and wind directions, and seasonal variations, such as the "wet and dry seasons of the year".

The moon does affect the tides of the oceans, and their rise and fall can be predicted. Tide tables have been around for hundreds of years. Rainfall is less predictable.

I DON'T THINK THAT THE MOON HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE RAINFALL.

The phases of moon include full moon and new moon. The waxing moon is when the moon is going from new moon to full moon. The waning moon is going from full moon to new moon. The quarters are midway between the full and new phases.

A full moon is when the moon most seen, and a new moon is when the moon is least seen.

The Moon is waxing (getting bigger) when it is going from New Moon to Full Moon. It is waning (getting smaller) when it is going from Full Moon to New Moon.

a new moon is when the moon is forming again and a full moon is when the moon is fully formed <><><><><> The new moon is when the Moon is minimally lighted, while the full moon is when the Moon is maximally lighted.

a full moon is when the moon is completely full and completely round. a new moon is when the moon appears to have dissapeared.

No. After the full moon we get a waning gibbous. The new moon phase does not occur until about two weeks after the full moon.

User Avatar

No. It is about 2 weeks from the new moon to the full moon.

The full moon is when you can see the whole moon. As for the new moon, you cant see anything.

Both full moon and new moon can be seen at the sunset. But full moon in the east and new moon in the west just after the full sunset.

When the moon is transitioning from full to new, it is in its waning stage. Conversely, when the moon is transitioning from new to full, it is waxing.

Usually the Moon passes to the north or south of the point where there would be an eclipse.

A full cycle (full moon to full moon) is about 29 1/2 days (on average); from new moon to full moon is - once again, on average - half that time.
