Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 37% and getting smaller. The 23 days old Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 30 March 2027 at 00:54.
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 ∠4° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♒ Aquarius later.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1920".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2027 after 20 days on 20 April 2027 at 22:27.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 336 of Meeus index or 1289 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 22 minutes. It is 3 hours and 15 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 1 hour and 38 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 25 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠242.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠278.5°.
Moon is at apogee at 01:33. It is 11 days after previous perigee on 19 March 2027 at 04:31 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 14 April 2027 at 00:41 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 404 331 km (251 240 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 077 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 378 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
11 days after descending node on 19 March 2027 at 13:05 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 2 April 2027 at 10:17 in ♒ Aquarius.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 28 March 2027 at 17:43 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.526°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.412° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 April 2027 at 19:29 in ♊ Gemini.
In 6 days on 6 April 2027 at 23:51 in ♈ Aries 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.
