At full Moon, the moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. At 3rd quarter, the moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. At new, the moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset, and we don't see any of the illuminated side! Then we see only a crescent, but compare this to the waning crescent: what's different?
