Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 24% and growing larger. The 5 days young Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 30 October 2054 at 20:01.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1811" and ∠1935".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2054 after 10 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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 678 of Meeus index or 1631 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 46 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 12 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 57 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠44°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠72.4°.
7 days after point of perigee on 28 October 2054 at 01:15 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 8 November 2054 at 19:52 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 395 836 km (245 961 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 372 km (251 265 mi).
9 days after ascending node on 25 October 2054 at 21:32 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 November 2054 at 04:08 in ♒ Aquarius.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 07:53 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-19.520°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠19.632° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 18 November 2054 at 17:11.
In 10 days on 15 November 2054 at 08:49 in ♉ Taurus 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.
