This is a small example for LUNA – integrated as a Moon Phases Widget.

At your top right (like in a common  sidebar of any template) , you can see an example of its implementation from the widgets admin area.

 

LUNA features 3 languages (english, portuguese and french) and 140 color schemes).

There’s also a simple shortcode integration with all the parameters required for full control (background and text color, language, and north/south viewing location.

You cannot look up at the night sky on the Planet Earth and not wonder what it's like to be up there amongst the stars. And I always look up at the moon and see it as the single most romantic place within the cosmos.
