Crescent ♋ Cancer
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 38% and getting smaller. The 23 days old Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 13 September 2036 at 10:29.
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 ∠6° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1949" and ∠1908".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2036 after 20 days on 5 October 2036 at 10:15.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 453 of Meeus index or 1406 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 42 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 4 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠9.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠25.8°.
11 days after point of apogee on 3 September 2036 at 00:30 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 18 September 2036 at 12:38 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 367 815 km (228 550 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 820 km (224 203 mi).
10 days after descending node on 3 September 2036 at 12:59 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 17 September 2036 at 07:43 in ♌ Leo.
24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 18:44 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠19.957°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-20.031° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 27 September 2036 at 16:26.
In 5 days on 20 September 2036 at 01:51 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.
