Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 14% and growing larger. The 3 days young Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 17 December 2036 at 15:34.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2037 after 11 days on 2 January 2037 at 02:35.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 457 of Meeus index or 1410 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 20 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 5 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 47 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠113°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠146.7°.
14 days after point of perigee on 7 December 2036 at 01:52 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 23 December 2036 at 01:08 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 404 732 km (251 489 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 081 km (251 706 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 02:03 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 3 January 2037 at 20:54 in ♌ Leo.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 18 December 2036 at 19:32 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.597°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.593° at the point of next northern standstill on 2 January 2037 at 00:56 in ♋ Cancer.
In 11 days on 2 January 2037 at 02:35 in ♋ Cancer 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.
