CCD Images

Taken by Margaretha Warnicke and Michele Nichols

These images of the moon were not all taken on the same night. In one of these images, the moon is only 8 days old and in its first quarter. Starring in the other four images is a slightly older moon (12 days) in its waxing gibbous phase. Can you guess which ones are which?
