A solution to last week's challenge can be found hereLUNACY.png

 

The word lunacy has its origins in the latin term for the moon (luna). For this week's challenge, we will embark on a little lunacy of our own and try to approximate the phases of the moon in Designer. Transform the 7 circles in the Input data file into polygons that resemble the assigned lunar phase in that row.

My crescents look better than my gibbous but I couldn't get it to look any better.

My gibbous moons could use some work but not terrible:

I tried too hard to copy the output exactly which resulted in a massive workflow... Although, I did create a cool batch macro that will create the points of a circle to make it more dynamic.
