: : I came up with this by accident when explaining the phases of the moon to my (then) three year old

: : When its white on the right, its bigger tonight
: : When its white on the left, that's all that's left

: : Feedback?

: Sounds good to me.

And if the moon is between half circle and full it's a gibbous moon. But is a 'Jibbous' or 'Gibbous' moon? I say 'Gibbous' with a hard 'G.' Am I correct?
