Quarter ♊ Gemini
Waning Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 66% and getting smaller. The 20 days old Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 24 August 2029 at 01:51.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2029 after 23 days on 22 September 2029 at 16:29.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 366 of Meeus index or 1319 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 49 minutes. It is 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 3 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 14 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠309.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠331.3°.
1 day after point of apogee on 29 August 2029 at 04:45 in ♉ Taurus. 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 10 September 2029 at 04:27 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 404 313 km (251 228 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 349 km (224 532 mi).
10 days after ascending node on 19 August 2029 at 15:32 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 3 September 2029 at 01:43 in ♋ Cancer.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 18 August 2029 at 13:12 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.253°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.127° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 September 2029 at 23:36 in ♊ Gemini.
In 8 days on 8 September 2029 at 10:44 in ♍ Virgo 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.
