Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 15% and getting smaller. The 25 days old Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 23 January 2033 at 17:46.
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 about ∠22° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1877" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2033 after 17 days on 14 February 2033 at 07:04.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
7 days after point of apogee on 20 January 2033 at 07:04 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 February 2033 at 07:27 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 381 889 km (237 295 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 085 km (223 746 mi).
4 days after ascending node on 22 January 2033 at 23:41 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 4 February 2033 at 19:25 in ♈ Aries.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 14:55 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-18.973°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2033. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠18.889° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 9 February 2033 at 07:09.
In 3 days on 30 January 2033 at 22:00 in ♒ Aquarius 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.
