The moon is getting full. I was walking outside when I saw this great picture, a gift from heaven! Gauteng, South Africa. From New moon to Full moon the Moon is growing bigger (young moon), and after Full moon it is growing small (old moon). Lunar phase on 21 April 2013 Sunday is Waxing Gibbous. This moon phase comes between one and two weeks after new moon. Info Photography: Nature Canon PowerShot SX40 HS FEATURED in Retired and Happy 24 April 2013.
