Crescent ♓ Pisces
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 4% and getting smaller. The 27 days old Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 26 February 2019 at 11:28.
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 passing about ∠20° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2019 after 16 days on 21 March 2019 at 01:43.
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.
The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 236 of Meeus index or 1189 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 1 minute. It is 2 hours and 13 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 6 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 47 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠175.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠200.2°.
Moon is at apogee at 11:25. It is 13 days after previous perigee on 19 February 2019 at 09:06 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 19 March 2019 at 19:47 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 406 391 km (252 520 mi) away from Earth. It is 983 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 318 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
2 days after descending node on 2 March 2019 at 11:03 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 16 March 2019 at 16:22 in ♋ Cancer.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 1 March 2019 at 06:23 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.642°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.761° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 March 2019 at 17:59 in ♋ Cancer.
In 2 days on 6 March 2019 at 16:04 in ♓ Pisces 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.
