Moon* ♐ Sagittarius
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 2% and getting smaller. The 28 days old Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 8 December 2058 at 04:51.
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 ∠7° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1898" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2058 after 15 days on 29 December 2058 at 20:25.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 728 of Meeus index or 1681 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 2 minutes. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 18 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 45 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠294°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠321.5°.
8 days after point of apogee on 6 December 2058 at 07:43 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 19 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 3 January 2059 at 02:24 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 377 642 km (234 656 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 19 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 679 km (252 077 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 09:40 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 27 December 2058 at 05:49 in ♊ Gemini.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 2 December 2058 at 15:32 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.007°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.991° at the point of next southern standstill on 16 December 2058 at 18:17 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 1 day on 15 December 2058 at 16:12 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
