Crescent ♈ Aries
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 19% and getting smaller. The 25 days old Moon is in ♈ Aries.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 11 May 2034 at 10:56.
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 ∠3° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1951" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2034 after 18 days on 2 June 2034 at 03:54.
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 424 of Meeus index or 1377 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 47 minutes. It is 34 minutes longer 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 4 hours and 57 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 12 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠353.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠9°.
11 days after point of apogee on 3 May 2034 at 06:24 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 17 May 2034 at 14:28 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 367 421 km (228 305 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 645 km (222 230 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 10:17 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 27 May 2034 at 04:57 in ♎ Libra.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 7 May 2034 at 09:07 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.290°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.340° at the point of next northern standstill on 20 May 2034 at 06:51 in ♊ Gemini.
In 3 days on 18 May 2034 at 03:12 in ♉ Taurus 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.
