When Is the moon said to be waxing ? waning ? How can you tell whether it is waxing or waning ?

The moon is “ waxing ” when its illuminated sur­face is increasing from new to full moon, and it is said
to be “ waning when it is decreasing from full moon back to new moon again. When “ waxing ” the crescent
is a right handed one, when “ waning ” a left handed one.
