Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 1% and growing larger. The 1 day young Moon is in ♎ Libra.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 7 October 2029 at 19:14.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2029 after 13 days on 22 October 2029 at 09:28.
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 368 of Meeus index or 1321 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 10 minutes. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 34 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 35 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠348.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠3.8°.
Moon is at perigee at 11:26. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 25 September 2029 at 19:40 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 23 October 2029 at 02:02 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 357 740 km (222 289 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 768 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 616 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
8 days after descending node on 30 September 2029 at 04:00 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 October 2029 at 17:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 29 September 2029 at 06:54 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.869°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.772° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 October 2029 at 01:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 13 days on 22 October 2029 at 09:28 in ♈ Aries 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.
