Moon* ♓ Pisces
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 1% and getting smaller. The 28 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 7 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 first ∠2° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1934".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2019 after 15 days on 21 March 2019 at 01:43.
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 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°.
1 day after point of apogee on 4 March 2019 at 11:25 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 March 2019 at 19:47 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 405 258 km (251 816 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 14 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 381 km (223 309 mi).
3 days after descending node on 2 March 2019 at 11:03 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 16 March 2019 at 16:22 in ♋ Cancer.
16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
4 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 10 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 1 day 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.
