f you are a ... (Check any that apply to you.)
... and you want to predict, research, or track the moon, you will love this software!
Thousands of people from around the world -- people with the same interests, hobbies or careers you selected -- have taken advantage of the benefits QuickPhase Pro provides.
In the past, finding the phases of the moon or position of the moon was either inconvenient, or time-consuming, or hard to understand ... or all three. With this software, you can have moon phase data at your fingertips, always available on your desktop, with fast, immediate calculations.
You can view all kinds of past or future moon data without complicated, expensive programs, technical jargon, or slow, tedious Internet research.
I'll tell you all about the features of QuickPhase Pro in a minute, but first...
Here's What I Discovered
When I started looking for moon phase data, I immediately jumped on the Internet looking for free info. Sure enough, I found a few sources, BUT with a very annoying "gotcha": I always had to have an Internet connection so it was slow and inconvenient, and cumbersome to wade through all the data to get what I wanted.
... none of what I found was a real solution for viewing moon phases.
So I started looking for moon phase software with calendar features, but couldn't find a direct, simple, inexpensive solution anywhere. Most programs were big, expensive
products, packed with astronomy technical terms and features for stars and planets and comets and you-name-it. And not surprisingly, hard to use. Sort of like using a sledgehammer to drive a nail.
The simpler moon programs I found were either boring or unsupported or were missing a few key features. (The way I figure it, even if someone eventually comes up with a program similar to mine, it won't ever be as attractive as my entire package! Read on...)
|Did you know that
the moon's motion is harder to calculate than the earth, sun, or any of the planets?
It's true. Our friendly moon follows a complex path as it circles the earth. Why? Because unlike
the planets, the moon's motion is influenced by both the sun AND the earth.
The most basic moon phase programs use what is called the "synodic period number", which is 29.5305882. It basically means that from our vantage point on Earth, the moon cycles completely in 29.5305882 days. The problem is, the moon's position (and phase) isn't perfectly "linear", so simple date arithmetic won't give accurate results.
QuickPhase Pro compensates for all that, making calculations for crazy-sounding things like the "mean anomaly", "orbit eccentricity", "parallax", "true orbital longitude" ... to churn out accurate numbers. This means that QuickPhase Pro gets within at least 1 minute of the precise moon phase at any moment in time. Amazing!
What is the "Ideal Moon Phase Program"?
If you are like me, you want a solution that:
After my research, I realized that the program I was looking for just didn't exist, so I decided to build it myself. Several months later... QuickPhase was born!
- Avoids Internet connections and websites -- in other words, you want personal computer software
- Provides the moon's phases, without the "fluff" and unnecessary information
- Is simple, fun and easy to use
- Is accurate anywhere in the world
- Allows calculations for any selected point in time (year, date and time)
- Gives detailed current moon phase information immediately -- on the opening screen, with:
- Visual image of the moon's current phase
- Age (how far along the moon is in a full cycle)
- Percent full (exactly how much of the moon is illuminated)
- Phase name (New Moon, Waxing Crescent, First Quarter Moon, Waxing Gibbous, Full Moon, Waning Gibbous, Third Quarter Moon, Waning Crescent)
- When the next new moon is
- When the next full moon is
- When the next 1st and 3rd quarter moons are
- Position of the moon in the sky (azimuth and altitude) at your location
- Times of moonrise and moonset for your location
- Has calendars for fast past and future browsing ... with clickable days ... and two printable designs
- Great graphics to simulate looking at the real moon
|"Never elsewhere have I seen such a simple, intuitive, and useful tool for my interest, and believe me, I've tried quite a few freeware and shareware options."
- Sarah, Louisiana, United States
|"For over a year I searched the web for a daily moon calendar that would allow me just to have a quick look at the current moon phase and a glance of the month's moon phases. As a Native Hawaiian woman the moon phases are important to me. My people fish, farm, and conduct many other activities according to the phases of the moon. QuickPhase is the best over all moon calendar that I have come across. I especially think that it's features is what sets it apart from other calendars I have purchased or looked at. Once it's downloaded, it's user friendly and very useful. I am so happy with my daily use of QuickPhase that I have given this program as a gift to a dear friend and plan to gift others with QuickPhase...Oh, and affordable too!"
- Carolyn Kuali`i, Hawaii
Is it hard to use?
Nope! QuickPhase Pro gives comprehensive moon phase information, but is still incredibly simple to use. Simply pick a date and time and QuickPhase Pro will calculate moon information for that date instantly. Enter another date or click a button and instantly generate a calendar for that month.
Navigation is a breeze. Flip from the Day view to the Month view ... or go back and forth by hour, day, or month. The program features are all laid out -- nothing cryptic.
If you have a question, you can go to the handy Help Screen, and get instructions and definitions or explanations of terms.
See for yourself -- let me show you some screenshots of the program, along with explanations...
(Note that screenshots below are just graphics so they aren't clickable)
Detailed Moon Data For A Specific Time And Date
QuickPhase Pro always opens up to the current moon phase -- so you'll always know at a glance what the phase is, and where the moon is ... right now! You can also quickly see when the next new or next full moon is.
And yes - that's the REAL moon, based on an image taken from NASA's Galileo spacecraft. I wanted to use real photographic images of the moon because computer-generated graphics are so bland and uninspiring!
QuickPhase Pro has been checked for accuracy for years 1700 to 2035. But if you're curious, you can select any date and time back to the year 0 B.C., and up to 9999 A.D.
Advancing the program to the next day (by exactly 24 hours) is easy: click the double white arrows. You can also for back and forth by the hour, by clicking the single white arrows.
Easy To Adjust Settings
||Changing any main setting -- like time, date, time zone, latitude, or longitude -- is easy and fast. The screenshot here (at left) demonstrates setting the time zone in the top bar.
For even more convenience, you can have all the setting fields in view in the box at the bottom of the screen (refer to the screenshot above). The box collapses and expands with one click on the little white arrow.
You can make such adjustments anytime without changing your main configuration settings. (I'll talk about the Configuration Screen in a moment.)
Monthly Calendars ... For The Past Or Future
These calendars are a valuable tool for anyone interested in predicting, researching or planning around the phases of the moon.
Simply pick a month and year, and find out the phases of the moon! For example, what was the phase of the moon when you were born? When you got hired for your job? On 9/11? Is there a pattern between your mood and the moon's phases?
You can click any moon image on the calendar and get fast details in the bar near the bottom of the calendar screen: age, percent of full, phase name, moonrise, and moonset. Want more detail? Just click any day number, and you'll be taken to the main screen with that day as the "Target Date". Nice and simple.
The 4 main quarter phases -- Full, New, First Quarter, and Last Quarter -- are marked as colored dates on the calendar.
To navigate back and forth one month at a time, you can use the white arrows on the calendar.
|"I now keep QuickPhase on my desktop and check in with the moon each day. This reinforces my observations and creates a continuous context for recognizing patterns of waxing and waning, rising and setting. I appreciate QuickPhase for reviving my dialogue with the skies. And I am delighted with the calendars. The calendars alone are worth the price of the software."
- Heather Noone, Oakland, CA
Two Printable Calendar Designs To Choose From
|Example of print output from each design.
Please note that onscreen quality as seen here is much lower than actual printouts.
These are high-resolution calendars, so they print beautifully on laser or inkjet printers, one calendar to a page. Notice that the calendar on the left has space reserved for a note on each day.
Every calendar you print will have the 4 main quarter phases marked.
Includes A Handy "Moon Phase Finder"
Would you like to know any upcoming quarter moon?
The "Find" screen will search for New, Full, First or Last Quarters, starting from any date and report up to 99 results at a time. So now, instead of endlessly clicking through every month, you can just press the "Find" button and let QuickPhase do all the work!
And here is an interesting feature: If you enter a month and day, you can limit the results to occurances on that date only. For example, when will a full moon fall on Christmas or the New Year or Halloween? (Hint: it doesn't happen very often!)
Quick Configuration Screen And User-Friendly Preferences
The "Configuration" setup screen allows you to save your coordinates (latitude and longitude) as well as time zone and Daylight Saving Time preference ... so it is always there every time Quickphase starts up. Do it once, and you're done.
Not only that, but there are several preferences you can set to make QuickPhase Pro convenient to use. You can change the date format from mm/dd/yyyy to dd/mm/yyyy, or the clock from 12-hour to 24-hour time.
To ensure you're always seeing the current moon, you can choose to have the main screen and time/date settings update dynamically every second, every 5 seconds, or every 30 seconds.
If you check the "Southern Hemisphere moon" checkbox, QuickPhase Pro will rotate all the moon images (Day view and Calendar views) to match how the moon phases appear in the Southern Hemisphere.
What People Are Saying About QuickPhase
I released the first version of QuickPhase on the Internet in June of 2002. Today, moon enthusiasts around the world are using QuickPhase to predict and research the phases of the moon.
Not surprisingly, I get most orders from the United States (particularly from the large states), but some memorable orders have come from Greece, Czech Republic, Kenya, Cyprus, and Ecuador just to name a few!
Who uses QuickPhase? Fishermen and hunters, gardeners, researchers, astrologers, astronomers, new-age, religions (of many kinds) and more.
The quotes you see running along the righthand side and elsewhere on this page are some of the emails I have received from delighted QuickPhase owners.

So How Much Does It Cost?
The truth is, as much as I've enjoyed creating this software, it has required a ton of time and effort. So far, I've spent at least 150 hours on programming, research and development. I charge $60 per hour for custom projects, but of course I want to keep the price of QuickPhase Pro as low as possible so anyone can benefit from having the program. Now you can take instant advantage of all my hard work and research.
|"I am thrilled with the purchase. I have never found a better reference for moon phases! ... I have to say the accuracy and speed are what attracts me most. Moon phases at a glance. Terrific purchase and excellent value for the money. Thank you."
- M.D., Canada
|"Recommending QuickPhase is easy. It was a quick decision for me and I am delighted with your program ... some people buy programs just because they like neat stuff, and your program is neat stuff. By the way all gardners should purchase this program because gardening by the moon phases really works. My roses are spectacular."
- Dana Haynes, California, United States
|"QuickPhase is a wonderful program to know the precise moon condition at any given time. I am very glad to have found this program. I think most everyone has an interest in the moon and QuickPhase is well worth the cost to provide such a vast amount of information about the moon."
- Jesse Moore, Clinton, MS, USA
The download option also comes with FREE Extended Download Service, with no time limit. This means you can re-download your software at any time, whatever the reason -- upgraded computer, computer crash, stolen computer, virus, etc.
On the other hand, if you don't like downloading or cannot download, you can choose a beautifully-designed CD to always have on hand.
I am sure I don't have to tell you that this kind of support is rare. The makers of the popular Norton Antivirus software, for instance, charge you for Extended Download Service, and it is limited to one year! You can't even get free tech support these days. For example, if you want Microsoft Word support, you need to pay for it. Even then, those plans always expire. So you are indeed getting a lot of free benefits when you buy QuickPhase Pro.
This package is a one-time purchase. It's not an ongoing monthly or yearly subscription and there are no time limits. There are no hidden fees or "gotcha's".
Immediately after you order, you will be sent to a thank-you page with a special access link to download the software (if you chose that option). At the same time, access information will be emailed to you. So even if you order the CD, there's no need to wait for the postman before you start using it.
QuickPhase Pro costs just
US$19.95 (UPDATE: As part of a special marketing test, I am dropping the price to US$9.95 ... see order form below for details). This includes FREE tech support if you have any questions.
Less than 10 minutes from now you could have QuickPhase Pro downloaded to your own computer and be up and running!

Still not convinced you should buy QuickPhase Pro? Then read a few more comments received from some of my customers:
|"Just a short note to let you know that QuickPhase Pro was about the best $20 bucks I have ever spent on a computer program. I love the product. Simple, quick and effective. The program is invaluable for planning my astronomy sessions. QuickPhase Pro is out of this world (pun intended) compared to some of the other junk moon programs I have used. Don't know how I did my hobby without it. Good job and thank you! ... P.S. I have no idea who you are and nobody asked or paid me to say this. I am simply of the opinion that everyone needs a little credit when it is due."
- Mike, South Pasadena, CA
|"I LOVE INFORMATION!!! I'm the kinda person who always knows what's 'number 1' or the speed of sound or whatever! However, who ever knows what the moon's doing? ME!! QuickPhase is just great ... I've told loads of people about QuickPhase I think it's fantastic and would always recommend anyone to buy it."
- Paul Driscoll, London, UK
|"I write to thank you for your stellar initiative discovering my mistake of accidentally double ordering the moon phase software on-line. Your honesty and exemplary service are quite refreshing in the quickly changing and increasingly faceless world wide internet retail industry. Other vendors could stand to follow your excellent customer care measures, so again, thanks and best wishes to you and your business. Also, the software is great. I enjoy what Iíve seen of it so far."
- Eric WK Hanson AIA, Minneapolis, MN
"I got everything, THANKS!! I LOVE my new moon phase package!!! It is so cool how you can see the current phase of the moon, what it was like on any given day in the past, and what it will be in the future at any date. This is way too cool! And I love the wallpaper and the screensaver as well."

"I am a retired Naval Officer who commanded a US Navy ship. Obviously, celestial navigation is a topic near and dear to my heart.
So, when my 9 year old daughter was studying the phases of the moon, I was eager to make her understand how the moon phases work. Her teacher assigned her the task of observing the moon each night and then draw and label the phase.
Unfortunately, moon rise many nights is well after her bed time. So, I found your software the perfect tool
to help her understand what the moon should be on a certain night and how it moves through its phases each month.
The software quickly eliminated any confusion she has and made it easy for her to fully appreciate the magnificence of the sky.
Thanks for a great product."

"Having spent about 30 years studying fish and game activity in relation to moon times, it didn't take me a whole lotta time on your website to decide that QuickPhase Pro was indeed just what I'd been looking for. I find it a facinating little program that's very user friendly and has more than met my every expectation
. Thanks again for a job well done!"

"I do enjoy your program, it is very useful to me. I am a 5th grade elementary school teacher
and one of our science standards is the phases of the moon. Your program, including the printable calendars, is a great way for my students to see the moon in action. They have been observing and drawing the moon for the last month and they double check their observations with your program. I am very happy with the software
and I did enjoy all the bonuses, there were some great pictures to share with my class."

"It is very useful to paranormal investigators to take all enviromental factors into consideration. By recording what particular phase the moon is in for each investgation, we can establish whether there are any patterns emerging. Activity may be more prominent during certain phases. A full moon for instance. Quickphase Pro is a quick and easy point of reference. We would highly recommend this program to other paranormal investigators
to help them in their endeavours to record all relevant information about the enviroment."

"G'day David, I use QuickPhase Pro for commercial fishing. It is an excellent tool to plan fishing trips
, as most pelagic species act [e.g bite/travel / show on the surface]during differing moon phases. It is also invaluable to include in reports and allows clear visual comparisons with the moon phase and fish showings/catches. Top buy. Cheers."

"As soon as I purchased QPP, the weather turned depressing around here for nearly 4 days. The clouds finally broke today in time for me to catch an early evening sunrise. This isnít the best shot and hopefully not the best moonrise I will ever capture, but I thought I would send it along just to say thank you. Iím sure itís no surprise to you, but the moon rose exactly where QuickPhase Pro said it would
. This is an infrared shot on the Batavia / Fox River Walk in Batavia, Illinois."

"The software is super easy to install and run and is very accurate. I can look at the calendar for tomorrow night and tell the combat patrol leader with confidence
that he will be working under a 1st Quarter Crescent moon. That is a very good piece of information that he can use to better prepare his men and needed equipment. Thank you for making such a wonderful program."

"I have used Quick Phase primarily in deer hunting applications. I have been a very successful deer hunter for many years and had long suspected that the moon phases had a lot to do with the movements or lack of, where deer are concerned. Not only have I been seeing larger numbers of deer
, since I started using "Quick Phase" I am seeing more trophy quality racks than ever before ... I would recommend "Quick Phase" to any serious hunter. Learn the application and use it in conjunction with situations, like the rut, and you will see more deer than you may have thought possible.

"I am using the QuickPhase Pro package in a workshop on the phases of the moon with 1st grade elementary teachers
. Many of the activities listed for teachers to do with students in the curriculum require nightly observations; this program allows use to virtually observe the phases so the teachers have quick experience in identifying the phases of the moon within the activities. I don't have to hunt for a site on the internet and hope it is there when I need it. I will let the teachers know about the program and how easy it was to purchase it. "

"I am very happy with QuickPhase Pro. It is simple to install, simple to use, and aesthetically appealing ...

"I really like QuickPhase Pro in the short time I have had it. I am an amateur astronomer and I use it for planning my observing, both of the Moon and of deep sky objects (when the Moon is a source of light pollution!). ;-) I especially like its "portability", the fact that it doesn't have to be installed in Windows and stored in the bowels of MicroSloth's registry. It is neat and quick and easy to use."

"Since I bought this program I've grown to love it. Easy, bug-less (in my experience) and always there! If you can't have the moon, this is the next best thing

"I purchased QuickPhase primarily because of a passive interest in the moon - after all, it there night in night out! I have however used the data in the production of reports on street lighting where the light of the moon will have and influence on readings taken.

"As a Scout leader, I've used the program to see how much light we'll have setting up camp ... The new version is great as it adds the moonrise and moonset times. This makes the new QuickPhase the most readable and aesthetically pleasing program I've seen on the web."

"I used it for my astronomy project to show the phases of the moon throughout a month. I put in my location coordinates and printed a picture of every moon phase, per day, on photographic paper. Then I mounted each picture on a coloured piece of card, depending on the type of phase, and stuck the description by the side of each one, and all on an A1 piece of lilac card. I received 36/40 for this and another project. So you can see how fantastic it was for me. I did explain that I used software to do it, but now wish I'd written that on the card to publicise your software. A fantastic piece of software showing everything you could ever need at any time, in a very impressive display. All from a simple program."

"Thank you for this neat program. For my money, I get quite a bit of use from it to look up what weekend evenings will have a full or near full moon so that I can schedule moon-lit walks in the outdoors. I also use it for teaching children about the moon's phases and how they affect the earth. It is an inexpensive means of finding phases of the moon quickly and easily. No thinking necessary
! When I need to know when there is a full moon on a weekend day, I simply scroll to the month I am interested in or use the convenient search tool."

"I am an astro-amateur but every year I have to get ready an astronomical calendar (very filled with astronomical data and, by this reason, very requested by the Italian Astronomical Clubs). Your program helps me a lot building the table showing the daily aspect of the moon, month by month, I was compelled to do choosing and copying the various aspects (365/366 in leap years) day by day! This is a gem! Compliments and thanks, David!"

"I am a fisherman and I use it all the time to check the moon phases. I like the ease of use and how you can print the month out and leave it on your boat. It is very clear and clean on the computer and the colors are great ... I have recommended it to my fellow fishing buddies in Michigan and Ohio. This is a great tool to fish with
and how easy it is to view and use."

"I use quickphase mainly just to see what the moon is doing and for religious reasons. I used to be bummed when I'd miss the full moon. Because I use my computer on a daily basis, it is really cool having access to the phases. I have REALLY enjoyed the screen saver as well. If you find yourself bummed out because you "missed" the full moon or any other phase you enjoy, use the moon for religious purposes, or just because you Love the moon....I totally recommend this program. It's great!"

"I love QuickPhase!! It has been a wonderful way to help me mark and celebrate the precise times of moon phases. *In my spiritual practice I mark and work with moon phases - both new and full* It's the easiest to understand, most accurate and is so very simple to use. I am grateful to have found this product and consider it's meager expense to have been more than worthwhile. Thank you!!"

"I am so extremley pleased with my purchase of QuickPhase Pro. I use the software for astrological purposes. Knowing exactly the moon's phases at my exact location is truly awesome. This is one program I've never regretted purchasing

"QuickPhase is a program well worth the money
. I have seen may other moon phase calculators on the internet, this is by far the best. It offers far more functionality than any others I have seen ... If a person is looking for a well designed moon phase calculator, this is the one to go with. It even allows the printing of calendars with a variety of styles.

"Hi, I love the program. It is just what I have been looking for. The free programs and backgrounds are also great. I have used several others and they don't compare to yours at all
. Keep up the great work."

"Many software packages do not deliver what is expected but I am pleased to say that QuickPhase surpassed mine
. The set up was easy and I can now accurately track the moon cycles in written and graphical representations. I would recommend to any PC user that has an interest in the moon."

"To all those people who are not sure you will enjoy this program
: I am surprised that having no specific need that I LOVE IT. The bonus features are not to be overlooked either, it is great to look at the screen saver and see the moon rising and setting in the same phase you would see if you looked out the window. I have also used the application to give my friends and family a calender and a print out of what the moon was doing on the day that THEY were born. It is always an original hit!

"I was originally an Astrophysicist
and now I am studying ancient religions. I use Quick Phase to research phases of the moon and its effects on people and politics. Because I travel all over the world and also need phases of the moon in different locations for my research, the convenience of changing location and ease of use I would give Quick Phase 5 stars
