Crescent ♈ Aries
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 2% and growing larger. The 1 day young Moon is in ♈ Aries.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 15 March 2029 at 04:19.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2029 after 13 days on 30 March 2029 at 02:26.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 361 of Meeus index or 1314 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 21 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 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 4 hours and 37 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 26 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠164.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠188.3°.
Moon is at apogee at 21:33. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 1 March 2029 at 18:30 in ♍ Virgo. 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 30 March 2029 at 05:40 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 406 528 km (252 605 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 120 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 181 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
7 days after ascending node on 9 March 2029 at 05:00 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 23 March 2029 at 20:28 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 7 March 2029 at 11:58 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.921°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.763° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 March 2029 at 05:25 in ♊ Gemini.
In 13 days on 30 March 2029 at 02:26 in ♎ Libra 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.
