Waxing Gibbous moon over Corsica, France.<br />
You'll see a waxing gibbous moon between a first quarter moon and full moon. The word gibbous comes from a root word that means hump-backed. People often see a waxing gibbous moon in the afternoon, shortly after moonrise, while it's ascending in the east as the sun is descending in the west.
