Crescent ♓ Pisces
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 1% and growing larger. The 1 day young Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 17 February 2007 at 16:14.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1956" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2007 after 13 days on 3 March 2007 at 23:17.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 88 of Meeus index or 1041 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 35 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 16 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 53 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠331.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠348.7°.
10 days after point of apogee on 7 February 2007 at 12:39 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 February 2007 at 09:34 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 366 411 km (227 677 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 440 km (224 588 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♓ Pisces at 20:43 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 4 March 2007 at 05:31 in ♍ Virgo.
At 20:43 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
5 days since the previous standstill on 13 February 2007 at 07:33 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.568°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.600° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 February 2007 at 23:35 in ♊ Gemini.
In 13 days on 3 March 2007 at 23:17 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
