Moon Phases
This interactive animation lets you see how the phases of the moon look from Earth and from Space.  It also has a feature to show how the Sun and Moon rise and set from your local horizon. You can even grab the moon with your mouse and move it back and forth or grab the Earth with your mouse to spin it around. Highly recommended.
