Crescent ♍ Virgo
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 5% and getting smaller. The 27 days old Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 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 ∠10° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1916".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2054 after 17 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 27 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°.
Moon is at perigee at 23:51. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 14 September 2054 at 13:46 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 12 October 2054 at 01:43 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 360 310 km (223 886 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 198 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 046 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 28 September 2054 at 16:44 in ♌ Leo. 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 12 October 2054 at 01:43 in ♒ Aquarius.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
4 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 8 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 1 day 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.
