Phoon displays the phase of the moon, either currently or at a specified date / time. Unlike other such programs, which just tell you how long since first quarter or something like that, phoon shows you the phase with a cute little picture. You can vary the size of the picture with the -l flag, but only some sizes have pictures defined - other sizes use @'s.
Sample output (HTMLized via texttohtml):
. . . -. \ . \ \ | \ Last Quarter + | 7 22:31:57 | New Moon - | 0 -7:-27:-27 / | / / ' / -' ' ' '
