Waxing means that it is getting bigger. Gibbous refers to the shape, which is less than the full circle of a Full Moon, but larger than the semicircle shape of the Moon at Third Quarter.

With some exceptions, the Waxing Gibbous Moon rises during the day, after noon. It is usually visible in the evening and sets after midnight.

The Moon has had an importance in human culture since the dawn of history and likely before.  Often revered as a feminine deity and counterpoint to a masculine Sun god, its monthly cycle as it passes through its phases has given life a discernible rhythm throughout time.

Moon Series
Guy Allen’s Moon Series of etchings was conceived and produced during the isolation of lockdown.  Printed on to black paper with white ink, this new direction stretched his imagination and technique but produced a luminous series.
