Crescent ♍ Virgo
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 34% and getting smaller. The 23 days old Moon is in ♌ Leo.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 24 October 2054 at 02:39.
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 ∠20° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1930".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2054 after 20 days on 15 November 2054 at 08:49.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 677 of Meeus index or 1630 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 12 minutes. It is 2 hours and 20 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 32 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 37 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠23.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠44°.
13 days after point of apogee on 12 October 2054 at 01:43 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 28 October 2054 at 01:15 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 363 749 km (226 023 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 225 km (226 940 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 21:32 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 8 November 2054 at 04:08 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 21:32 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
3 days since the previous standstill on 22 October 2054 at 10:52 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.417°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.520° at the point of next southern standstill on 4 November 2054 at 07:53 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 5 days on 30 October 2054 at 20:01 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
