Moon* ♒ Aquarius
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 2% and getting smaller. The 28 days old Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 27 January 2019 at 21:10.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♒ Aquarius later.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1774" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2019 after 16 days on 19 February 2019 at 15:53.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 235 of Meeus index or 1188 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 35 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2019. It is 35 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 6 hours and 51 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 12 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠149.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠175.6°.
12 days after point of perigee on 21 January 2019 at 19:58 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 5 February 2019 at 09:26 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 404 027 km (251 051 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 556 km (252 622 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 06:35 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 17 February 2019 at 09:42 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 2 February 2019 at 00:48 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.547°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.590° at the point of next northern standstill on 16 February 2019 at 09:56 in ♋ Cancer.
In 1 day on 4 February 2019 at 21:04 in ♒ Aquarius the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
