Crescent ♈ Aries
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 28% and getting smaller. The 24 days old Moon is in ♈ Aries.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 4 June 2029 at 01:19.
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 ∠13° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2029 after 19 days on 26 June 2029 at 03:22.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 363 of Meeus index or 1316 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours and 7 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 1 hour and 24 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 39 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠213.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠244.2°.
Moon is at apogee at 22:09. It is 11 days after previous perigee on 25 May 2029 at 22:19 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 22 June 2029 at 15:35 in ♏ Scorpio.
This apogee Moon is 405 105 km (251 721 mi) away from Earth. It is 303 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 604 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
7 days after ascending node on 29 May 2029 at 17:34 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 13 June 2029 at 04:49 in ♋ Cancer.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 28 May 2029 at 14:12 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.396°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.392° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 June 2029 at 22:05 in ♊ Gemini.
In 5 days on 12 June 2029 at 03:51 in ♊ Gemini 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.
