MB Moon Phase is a simple and accurate astronomy tool. The program has been uniquely designed to calculate which phase the Moon is passing through on any particular day. The program is based on the astronomy calculations which in turn are dependant upon the relative position of the sun, moon and the EARTH.
Moon phases are caused by the positions of the Earth in relation to that of the Sun and the Moon. On an average it takes 27 days 7 hours and 43 minutes for the Moon to revolve around the Earth. It is known to all of us that the Moon reflects the light of the Sun. And thus the Sun always illuminates one half of the Moon that is facing the sun, except during lunar eclipses. During its transition around the Earth, when the Sun and the Moon are positioned on the opposite sides of the Earth, the moon is seen to be bright and completely round. This is the 'full moon' day; again, when the moon falls in Between the earth and the sun, it is known as the 'Dark Moon' day. And in between the 'full' and the 'dark' moon days, the surface of the Moon appears to grow (wax) and then decreases (wanes) to form the next new moon. And in this way the phases of the Moon continue to change.
MB Moon Phase is an advanced yet handy software that lets you calculate on which day in what phase the Moon will be in. The software is simple and 'user-friendly'; the best part is, it is totally free of cost and the reading takes just a few minutes to be administered.
