Waxing crescent is the Moon phase, which comes after a New Moon and lasts until the First Quarter (the time when half of the lunar disk is lit). Usually, this period lasts about a week, takes the first 7 lunar days.
If you do not have a Moon calendar, you can identify a waxing crescent with the naked eye – it looks like the letter “P” if you add a wand to it. In addition, less than half of the lunar disk shines in the night sky.
