Crescent ♉ Taurus
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 5% and growing larger. The 2 days young Moon is in ♈ Aries.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days 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 ∠22° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2029 after 12 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 2 days 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°.
1 day after point of apogee on 16 March 2029 at 21:33 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 30 March 2029 at 05:40 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 405 166 km (251 758 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 665 km (221 621 mi).
8 days after ascending node on 9 March 2029 at 05:00 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 23 March 2029 at 20:28 in ♋ Cancer.
8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
10 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 4 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 12 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.
