After the first quarter, when the sunlit portion is increasing, and is more than half, it is called a waxing gibbous moon.
Tonight was very clear and the moon was bright. I put my new camera on a tripod to hold it steady and ran the zoom up as far as it will go. Here is the result. Not like an observatory telescope but pretty darn good. The moon will be full April 9 and I am hoping for a clear night.
