Crescent ♋ Cancer
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 22% and growing larger. The 4 days young Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 23 April 2039 at 09:35.
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 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1781" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2039 after 9 days on 8 May 2039 at 11:20.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 486 of Meeus index or 1439 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 3 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2039. It is 20 minutes longer 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 3 hours and 19 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 44 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠151.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠176.2°.
2 days after point of apogee on 26 April 2039 at 06:54 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 9 May 2039 at 01:48 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 402 530 km (250 121 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 636 km (222 225 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 27 April 2039 at 14:05 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 10 May 2039 at 18:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
13 days since the previous standstill on 14 April 2039 at 17:09 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.485°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠24.598° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 April 2039 at 03:37 in ♋ Cancer.
In 9 days on 8 May 2039 at 11:20 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
