Moon* ♏ Scorpio
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 1% and getting smaller. The 28 days old Moon is in ♏ Scorpio.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 30 October 2029 at 11:32.
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 first ∠4° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2029 after 15 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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 23:09. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 23 October 2029 at 02:02 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 19 November 2029 at 02:53 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 356 900 km (221 767 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 608 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 456 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after descending node on 27 October 2029 at 05:23 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 November 2029 at 23:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
23 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 26 October 2029 at 12:40 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.659°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.613° at the point of next southern standstill on 8 November 2029 at 11:00 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 1 day 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.
