Crescent ♍ Virgo
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 12% and getting smaller. The 26 days old Moon is in ♌ Leo.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 24 September 2054 at 18:26.
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 ∠25° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1915".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2054 after 18 days on 16 October 2054 at 17:44.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 676 of Meeus index or 1629 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 31 minutes. It is 1 hour and 41 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 13 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 56 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠7.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠23.7°.
13 days after point of apogee on 14 September 2054 at 13:46 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 29 September 2054 at 23:51 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 363 361 km (225 782 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 310 km (223 886 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 16:44 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 12 October 2054 at 01:43 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 16:44 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
3 days since the previous standstill on 25 September 2054 at 05:02 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.216°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.290° at the point of next southern standstill on 7 October 2054 at 22:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 2 days on 1 October 2054 at 09:49 in ♎ Libra 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.
