Crescent ♓ Pisces
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 26% and getting smaller. The 24 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 28 April 2027 at 20:18.
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 ∠10° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1797" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2027 after 18 days on 20 May 2027 at 10:59.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 337 of Meeus index or 1290 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 7 minutes. It is 2 hours and 25 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 37 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 32 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠278.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠308.6°.
3 days after point of apogee on 27 April 2027 at 21:21 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 9 May 2027 at 20:07 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 398 767 km (247 782 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 635 km (227 816 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 29 April 2027 at 13:24 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 May 2027 at 17:03 in ♌ Leo.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 25 April 2027 at 01:45 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.312°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.225° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 May 2027 at 01:45 in ♊ Gemini.
In 4 days on 6 May 2027 at 10:58 in ♉ Taurus 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.
