Lunar Phase ?

    Hello! Why does the moon has different rise and set timing for different phases? And also, why does it rise from different directions during different phases? Help me out please!

    This sounds kind of like a conceptual homework question. Homework questions belong in the homework forum, and you have to try to reason out some of it yourself.

    Hey Matterwave, this is not a homework question. Please help me out, if you can!
    Thank you!

    You might want to look at the geometry between the earth, moon and sun.
