I saw these views of the moon in the area around the extended stay hotel I frequented in Jacksonville, Florida.

At 7:15a.m., which was not long after sunrise on November 1, 2015, the moon was well-lit.
The moon rises and sets at different times during different times of the year. On July 25, 2016 the setting moon was still high in the sky at 10:30a.m.
On January 20, 2016 the rising moon had just cleared the trees by 3:48p.m.

I happened to be outside at 9:20p.m. on January 14, 2016 and noticed the moon in a cup shape.
I thought perhaps the moon crescent appeared in different locations at different times of the year.
I was out at sunset at 5:42p.m. the next day, January 15, 2016 and noticed the crescent in a different location.
I deduced the crescent changes apparent location as the night progresses.
Two days later at sunset on January 17th I captured this images with many visible craters.
A change of the tilt exposes a few more ridges and craters. (December 7, 2016)
January 21, 2016 was two days before the full moon. I captured these three images at to show the apparent color change of the moon.
The left is a late afternoon image at 5:37p.m. The middle image is right at sunset at 5:51p.m. The right image is after sunset at 6:21p.m.
