On the nights before and after a new moon when just a thin crescent is present, it is sometimes possible to make out the stunning effect known as Earthshine, or Da Vinci Glow
During this time, it appears as though you can see the entire disk of the moon dimly illuminated with an almost bluish-gray glow, along with the brightly lit crescent. As such, the term Earthshine is sometimes referred to as “The old moon in the new moon’s arms.” The glow is produced by light from a fully illuminated Earth reflecting off the lunar surface. - New Moon with Effects Worth Seeing - Space.com
