Gibbous Moon

From the playing of An Dro.

During a Gibbous Moon, it is between Three-Quarters Full and Full, so, the tune title seems to refer to "nearly a full moon".

Re: Gibbous Moon

Sorry to be pedantic, but the Moon is gibbous any time more than half (of the side that faces the Earth) is illuminated.

Whoops, my bad.

My description above fits just "waning gibbous", not both "waning" and "waxing" gibbous.
