Crescent ♉ Taurus
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 27% and growing larger. The 5 days young Moon is in ♈ Aries.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 30 January 2033 at 22:00.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2033 after 9 days on 14 February 2033 at 07:04.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 409 of Meeus index or 1362 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 24 minutes. It is 56 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 2 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 49 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠336.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠353°.
3 days after point of perigee on 1 February 2033 at 07:27 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 16 February 2033 at 19:57 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 365 568 km (227 153 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 072 km (252 321 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 19:25 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 19 February 2033 at 01:22 in ♎ Libra.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 27 January 2033 at 14:55 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.973°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.889° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 February 2033 at 07:09 in ♊ Gemini.
In 9 days on 14 February 2033 at 07:04 in ♌ Leo 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.
