Crescent ♓ Pisces
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 12% and getting smaller. The 26 days old Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 17 March 2028 at 23:23.
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 ∠22° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1925".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2028 after 17 days on 9 April 2028 at 10:27.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 348 of Meeus index or 1301 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 54 minutes. It is 2 hours and 38 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 5 hours and 10 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 53 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠186.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠212.1°.
Moon is at apogee at 23:24. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 10 March 2028 at 08:23 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next perigee on 7 April 2028 at 16:02 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 406 096 km (252 336 mi) away from Earth. It is 688 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 613 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 20 March 2028 at 16:19 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 3 April 2028 at 22:08 in ♋ Cancer.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 17 March 2028 at 10:25 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.380°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.235° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 April 2028 at 03:04 in ♊ Gemini.
In 3 days on 26 March 2028 at 04:31 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.
