The phases of the moon aren't created by the earth eclipsing the moon,
Ann.  Eclipse stages and moon phases don't look alike, either, though

I'm abstaining on the question of which was depicted on the box,
mostly because I don't believe the TP production staff has their shit
together enough to know the difference.  ("Welcome to amateur hour")
