The phases of the moon are part of a quest from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Modeled after the real-world moon's rotation around Earth, Link uses the lunar cycle found inside the Ghost Ship Chart to track the Ghost Ship across the Great Sea in his search for the eight shards of the Triforce. The lunar phases are also critical in obtaining Legendary Pictographs from Lenzo.

Phases

Waxing Crescent

Right Crescent

When the moon appears as a right-facing crescent, the Ghost Ship Chart indicates that the Ghost Ship can be found at the Five-Star Isles. Link may also purchase a Legendary Pictograph of Fado for 50 Rupees (150 in Wind Waker HD) during this phase.

First Quarter

When only the right side of the moon is visible, the Ghost Ship can be found at Star Belt Archipelago. Lenzo will also sell a Legendary Pictograph of Laruto during the first quarter.

Waxing Gibbous

Waxing Gibbous

When the moon is growing from the first quarter, but not quite a full moon, it becomes a waxing gibbous, during which time the Ghost Ship can be found sailing near Greatfish Isle. A Legendary Pictograph of Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule becomes available to Link at this time as well.

Full Moon

Full Moon

When the moon is fully visible in the night sky, the Ghost Ship can be found at Crescent Moon Island. The Legendary Pictograph of Ganon becomes available during this phase as well.

Additionally, Link can take a pictograph of the moon in this phase with his Deluxe Picto Box and show the picture to Kamo on Windfall Island to receive a Treasure Chart.

Waning Gibbous

Waning Gibbous

When the moon is shrinking from a full moon before becoming the last quarter, it becomes a waning gibbous, at which time the Ghost Ship will appear at Diamond Steppe Island. A Legendary Pictograph of a Great Fairy is also available during the waning gibbous.

Last Quarter

Last Quarter

When only the left side of the moon is visible, the Ghost Ship appears at Bomb Island. Additionally, Jabun is the subject of Lenzo's Legendary Pictograph during this time.

Waning Crescent

Left Crescent

When the moon is shaped as a left-facing crescent, the Ghost Ship will appear at Spectacle Island. A Legendary Pictograph of the Queen of Fairies also becomes available.
