Daily lunar phases for the month

Lunar Observing Resources
Inconstant Moon
Everybody notices the phases of the Moon, but to most people every full Moon is alike - the rising or setting Moon looks large due to perspective's playing tricks on the eye, but surely the full Moon high in the sky is always the same, right? Wrong.
Filter Techniques for Lunar Observations
Color Filters are of great value to the planetary observer. They help overcome image deterioration caused by scattering in the planet's atmosphere and in the earth's, as well as by atmospheric prismatic dispersion.
Photographing the Moon
Site dedicated to photographing the various phases of the moon using a standard camera.
Lunar Eclipse Photography
The ins and outs of photographing various stages of a lunar eclipse.
Lunar Eclipse Observer
This is a page for everyone. From the casually interested person, the science student who is looking for a challenging project, or the serious astronomer whom would like to contribute to a scientific program of observations to determine the geometry of the umbral shadow and to define the change in the upper atmosphere of our earth.
Exploring the Moon
Provides knowledge about the Moon and its history of exploration, including an online photographic lunar atlas; a comprehensive catalog of lunar craters; complete texts of critical early papers and other interesting lunar information.
International Ocultation and Timing Association
Provides predicitions and timings for lunar occultations and other events. Sometimes ground-track charts are included with predictions.
Height of Lunar Mountains
An exercise in how to estimate the height of lunar mountains, based on the lengths of the shadows they cast.
Lunar Data Resources
The Moon (Views of the Solar System)
Comprehensive information on all aspects of the moon, covering the Apollo mission, the lunar interior, poles and far side, animations and recent data from the Lunar mapping missions.
The Moon (Nine Planets)
Information on our nearest neighbour with a general overview and more detailed coverage of topics like Lunar Transient Phenomena, rocks and regolith, historical observations, etc.
The Moon (NSSDC)
A list of lunar resources maintained by the National Space Science Data Center in the U.S.
The Origin of the Moon
The idea that the Moon was spawned from the Earth following a massive planetary impact was first suggested in a paper published in 1975 in the journal Icarus.
Ice on the Moon
The ice discovered in 1998 could represent relatively pristine cometary or asteroid material which has existed on the Moon for millions or billions of years.
Lunar Orbiter Photographic Atlas of the Moon
Presented here is a digital reproduction of the "Lunar Orbiter Photographic Atlas of the Moon" by Bowker and Hughes. This guidebook to the Lunar Orbiter imagery is the definitive reference manual to global photographic coverage of the Moon.
Lunar Ventures
The Artemis Project
Artemis is a private venture to establish a permanent, self-supporting community on the Moon.  Here, you will find out how we are going to get there, how we are going to pay for it, and how you can come too!
LunaCorp will allow you to "teleport" to the Moon to explore using the body of a robot. The two-year Lunar Rover Expedition starts with the launch of two rovers in 2000.
Applied Space Resources
Organized in 1997, Applied Space Resources publicly announced in January 1998 its intent (as a commercial venure) to return to the Moon in the year 2000.
Lunar Prospector Mission
The Lunar Prospector Mission
NASA site covering the Lunar mapping mission which launched on January 6th, 1998.
Lunar Prospector: Return to the Moon
CNN coverage of the ongoing Lunar Prospector mission. Contains retrospectives and videos.
Lunar Prospector
Details the Prospector mission and the instruments carried aboard the craft.
The Lunar Prospector Mission is the focus of an exciting education program called Moonlink. This education program is designed for students and gives them the opportunity to become actively involved in the mission.
Clementine Mission
Clementine Mission
A site dedicated to the Clementine Moon Mission which took place in 1993. The site contains a link to the Clementine Lunar Image Browser.
Apollo Moon Missions
America's Greatest Adventure
Between the years of 1969 and 1972, twelve Americans walked on the surface of the Moon. During those missions, literally thousands of photographs of the lunar surface and landscape were taken.
Apollo 11 30th Anniversary
On July 20, 1969, the human race accomplished its single greatest technological achievement of all time when a human first set foot on another celestial body.
Apollo Lunar Surface Journal
This NASA site is an intricate, accurate, fast-moving, fascinating, and often humorous record on one of mankind's early expeditions away from the Earth, covering Apollo's 11 to 17.
Lunar Software
LunarPhase V2.30
Provides rising, transit and setting times for both the Sun and Moon, start and end times for Civil, Nautical and Astronomical twilight and a range of information on the Moon and, to a lesser degree, the Sun, graphically displaying the current phase of the moon (in real time), its age, percentage illuminated, distance, position and the times and dates of the major lunar phases for the selected month and year. Also provides a range of lunar eclipse info.
Lunar Occultation Workbench
Accurate, versatile program for the computation of predictions of occultations by the Moon of some 53879 stars and the 8 major planets. For any location on Earth you can create list of predictions that suit your specific needs. In addition you can record your observations and send them in a standard format either to your local lunar occultations contact person, or to the International Lunar Occultation Centre in Japan.
Miscellaneous Lunar Resources
American Lunar Society
A society interested in lunar astronomy, exploration, exploitation of resources, and even historical subjects such as lunar mythology and the history of lunar astronomy.
Luna NOW
A collection of links relating to all things lunar. It also covers the current Lunar Prospector Mission.
A.L.P.O. Lunar section
