The Moon on April 14 2003 – Waxing Gibbous
The moon on april 14 2003 is in Virgo zodiac sign and is in its waxing gibbous phase that will last the entire day. During the morning, it will be 361 955 km from Earth and at lunch time it will be 363 974 km from Earth.
Waxing Gibbous is the first lunar phase of a month that is not a full moon. This phase is visible through most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise.
During this phase the Moon is 92% illuminated and is growing in size. It was in this phase on April 14th 2003, Monday.
This phase is the last one before it reaches maximum illumination, which will be on May 4th 2003. This is a phase that can make you feel very emotional and can lead to a lot of stress or anxiety.
You’ll probably want to be with someone special on this phase. You can share your feelings and make sure they know how important they are to you.
It’s also the time when you are more willing to be honest with people because you aren’t so afraid of hurting their feelings or losing them. During this phase, you are more likely to have strong relationships with people because they’ll be able to see your true self and they’ll be able to sense that you’re truly there for them.
As a result, this is a great time to be a mentor to others. You’ll be able to help them grow as you have grown and will be able to guide them through the tough times.
On this day the moon is in a waxing gibbous phase that will last for about 7 days until it becomes a full moon. This phase starts out very dark, but becomes more and more illuminated each day until it reaches maximum light levels on May 4th.
These images are a composite of “raw” red-band data taken by NASA’s Terra spacecraft on April 14, 2003 as it executed an acrobatic maneuver to pass in front of the Moon. The images were made over a 16-minute interval, as the Lunar Disk passed through the field-of-view of each of Terra’s nine cameras.
The acrobatic maneuver involved the spacecraft’s pitching and somersaulting end-over-end to allow several instruments on Terra to see the deep space. This allowed the spacecraft’s radiometric calibration instruments to be calibrated against the Moon without the need for any astrophysical corrections.
