Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Waning Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 99% and getting smaller. The 15 days old Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 22 October 2029 at 09:28.
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 ∠12° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2029 after 28 days on 21 November 2029 at 04:03.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 apogee at 02:02. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 8 October 2029 at 11:26 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 5 November 2029 at 23:09 in ♏ Scorpio.
This apogee Moon is 406 433 km (252 546 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 025 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 276 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
10 days after ascending node on 12 October 2029 at 17:59 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 27 October 2029 at 05:23 in ♊ Gemini.
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 12 October 2029 at 01:50 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.772°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.659° at the point of next northern standstill on 26 October 2029 at 12:40 in ♊ Gemini.
In 13 days on 6 November 2029 at 04:24 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
