Are the phases of the moon always the same length?

    Moon phases are approximately the same length from cycle to cycle.  A full moon cycle (synodic month) is, on average, 29.53 days.

    For example, the first phase, the New Moon Phase, lasts approximately 2.66 days.  It might last a little less, or a little more, but it’s overall predictable.

    If you’re asking if all eight phases of the moon *New Moon, New Crescent, First Quarter, New Gibbous, Full Moon, Old Gibbous, Last Quarter, and Old Crescent) are the same length in one synodic month, then the answer is no.
