Crescent ♊ Gemini
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 11% and growing larger. The 3 days young Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 13 April 2029 at 21:40.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1805" and ∠1911".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2029 after 10 days on 28 April 2029 at 10:37.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 362 of Meeus index or 1315 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 2 minutes. It is 1 hour and 54 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 3 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 45 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠188.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠213.4°.
4 days after point of apogee on 12 April 2029 at 23:04 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 April 2029 at 16:24 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 396 996 km (246 682 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 829 km (222 345 mi).
12 days after ascending node on 5 April 2029 at 05:50 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 19 April 2029 at 21:27 in ♋ Cancer.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
13 days since the previous standstill on 3 April 2029 at 19:08 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.661°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠24.526° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 April 2029 at 10:56 in ♊ Gemini.
In 10 days on 28 April 2029 at 10:37 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
