Phases of the Moon
------------------

   Emacs can tell you the dates and times of the phases of the moon (new
moon, first quarter, full moon, last quarter), if floating point is
available.

`M'
     List, in another window, the dates and times for all the quarters
     of the moon for the three-month period shown in the calendar window
     (`calendar-phases-of-moon').

`M-x phases-of-moon'
     List dates and times of the quarters of the moon for three months
     around today's date in another window.

   Use the `M' command to display a separate buffer of the phases of
the moon for the current three-month range.  The dates and times listed
are accurate to within a few minutes.

   You can display the list of the phases of the moon for the current
month and the preceding and succeeding months even if you don't have a
calendar window.  Use the command `M-x phases-of-moon'.  If you want
the phases of the moon centered around a different month, use `C-u M-x
phases-of-moon' and type the month and year.

   The dates and times given for the phases of the moon are given in
local time (corrected for daylight savings, when appropriate); but if
the variable `calendar-time-zone' is void, Universal Time (the
Greenwich time zone) is used.  Note: Daylight Savings
