Crescent ♈ Aries
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 5% and getting smaller. The 27 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 31 March 2035 at 23:06.
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 ∠21° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1876" and ∠1917".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2035 after 16 days on 22 April 2035 at 13:21.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 435 of Meeus index or 1388 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 42 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 56 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 13 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠291.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠318.8°.
7 days after point of apogee on 30 March 2035 at 05:37 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 11 April 2035 at 01:12 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 382 111 km (237 433 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 449 km (226 458 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♓ Pisces at 00:06 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 18 April 2035 at 17:57 in ♍ Virgo.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 31 March 2035 at 09:27 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.441°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.513° at the point of next northern standstill on 13 April 2035 at 15:55 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day on 8 April 2035 at 10:58 in ♈ Aries 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.
