Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 6% and growing larger. The 2 days young Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 1 January 2033 at 10:17.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1954" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2033 after 12 days on 15 January 2033 at 13:07.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 408 of Meeus index or 1361 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 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 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 8 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠315.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠336.6°.
11 days after point of apogee on 23 December 2032 at 11:34 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 4 January 2033 at 05:24 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 366 862 km (227 957 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 354 km (227 020 mi).
7 days after ascending node on 26 December 2032 at 21:36 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 January 2033 at 18:31 in ♈ Aries.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 31 December 2032 at 03:26 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.115°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.075° at the point of next northern standstill on 13 January 2033 at 00:33 in ♊ Gemini.
In 12 days on 15 January 2033 at 13:07 in ♋ Cancer 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.
