Moon* ♍ Virgo
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 ♍ Virgo.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 15 September 2033 at 17:34.
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 ∠18° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1912".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2033 after 15 days on 8 October 2033 at 10:58.
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 416 of Meeus index or 1369 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 49 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 16 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 47 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠140.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠166.6°.
12 days after point of perigee on 10 September 2033 at 01:49 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 25 September 2033 at 01:33 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 402 989 km (250 406 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 444 km (252 553 mi).
11 days after descending node on 10 September 2033 at 19:07 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 September 2033 at 12:46 in ♎ Libra.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 15 September 2033 at 23:39 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.313°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.282° at the point of next southern standstill on 30 September 2033 at 17:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 1 day on 23 September 2033 at 13:40 in ♍ Virgo 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.
