Crescent ♋ Cancer
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 1% and growing larger. The 1 day young Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 13 June 2037 at 17:10.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1899" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2037 after 13 days on 27 June 2037 at 15:20.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 463 of Meeus index or 1416 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 22 minutes. It is 1 hour and 12 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 3 hours and 23 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 47 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠292.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠318.7°.
8 days after point of apogee on 6 June 2037 at 01:22 in ♓ Pisces. 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 June 2037 at 16:37 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 377 447 km (234 535 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 923 km (229 238 mi).
12 days after descending node on 2 June 2037 at 03:23 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 16 June 2037 at 07:41 in ♋ Cancer.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
13 days since the previous standstill on 31 May 2037 at 16:34 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.325°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠21.359° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 June 2037 at 01:37 in ♋ Cancer.
In 13 days on 27 June 2037 at 15:20 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
