The moon has eight phases and they are shown here on this interactive spinner wheel. The phases of the moon that can be seen are as follows:

New moon, waxing crescent moon, first quarter moon, waxing gibbous moon, full moon, waning gibbous moon, third quarter moon, waning crescent moon

Of course, the phases of the moon then repeat again, because they are in a constant cycle.

To see the phases of the moon in order of how they appear in the night sky, click or tap on the wheel and it will spin in the correct sequence.

Fun fact: Did you know that moon's eight phases, as seen from planet earth, can also be represented in emoji form? Here they are from new moon to waning crescent:
