Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 4% and growing larger.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 27 June 2014 at 08:09.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.43% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July after 12 days on 12 July 2014 at 11:25.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of Leo tropical zodiac sector.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 179 of Meeus index or 1132 from Brown series.
Length of current 179 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 33 minutes. It is 58 minutes shorter than next lunation 180.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠144.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly is ∠169.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months increases since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
14 days after point of perigee on 15 June 2014 at 03:34, lunar orbit gets wider while the Moon moves outward the Earth. It keeps this direction for next 1 day until it gets to the point of apogee on 30 June 2014 at 19:09.
Moon is 405 013 km (251 663 mi) away from Earth on this date. At previous perigee point before 14 days, distance is 362 062 km (224 975 mi). Moon moves farther next 1 day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance reaches 405 932 km (252 234 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 21 June 2014 at 20:30, the Moon follows the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days untill it crosses the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 July 2014 at 09:50.
20 days after its beginning, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of current draconic month.
3 days after previous North standstill on 26 June 2014 at 08:34, when Moon reaches northern declination of ∠19.035°, lunar orbit moves southward for the next 11 days to face South declination of ∠-18.982° in the next southern standstill on 10 July 2014 at 17:29.
After 12 days the Moon is in Full Moon opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy on 12 July 2014 at 11:25.
