Crescent ♈ Aries
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 15% and growing larger. The 4 days young Moon is in ♈ Aries.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 13 February 2029 at 10:31.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1941".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2029 after 11 days on 28 February 2029 at 17:10.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 360 of Meeus index or 1313 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 48 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2029. It is 27 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 4 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠136.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠164.5°.
Moon is at apogee at 11:59. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 1 February 2029 at 12:21 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 1 March 2029 at 18:30 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 405 812 km (252 160 mi) away from Earth. It is 404 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 897 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
7 days after ascending node on 10 February 2029 at 03:07 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 February 2029 at 16:44 in ♋ Cancer.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 8 February 2029 at 06:14 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.127°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.019° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 February 2029 at 22:00 in ♊ Gemini.
In 11 days on 28 February 2029 at 17:10 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
