Crescent ♉ Taurus
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 7% and growing larger. The 3 days young Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 24 March 2039 at 17:59.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1923".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2039 after 12 days on 9 April 2039 at 02:53.
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 485 of Meeus index or 1438 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 35 minutes. It is 28 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 2 hours and 51 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 12 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠120.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠151.8°.
13 days after point of perigee on 13 March 2039 at 18:38 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 29 March 2039 at 17:29 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 403 672 km (250 830 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 124 km (251 732 mi).
10 days after descending node on 17 March 2039 at 10:05 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 31 March 2039 at 11:40 in ♊ Gemini.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 18 March 2039 at 11:25 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.232°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.377° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 April 2039 at 20:16 in ♋ Cancer.
In 12 days on 9 April 2039 at 02:53 in ♎ Libra 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.
