The appearance of the Moon changes depending on its position comparative to the position of the Sun. For instance, when the Moon is between the Earth and the Sun, the side facing the Earth is dark and this is known as a new Moon. When continues to revolve around the Sun until its facing Earth becomes fully lit. This is referred to as a full moon phase.
The moon is currently in the waxing Gibbous phase. It is 83% full which means that it is very visible from Earth. Tonight should have plenty of moonlight.
