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 + | @ 5 19:05:12 |@ New Moon - | 2 6:40:48 \ | \ \ `\ \ `-. `- `- `-
