Crescent ♉ Taurus
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 20% and growing larger. The 4 days young Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 2 March 2060 at 16:11.
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 ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2060 after 10 days on 17 March 2060 at 03:41.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 744 of Meeus index or 1697 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 26 minutes. It is 53 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 3 hours and 18 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 51 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠342.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠358.2°.
2 days after point of perigee on 3 March 2060 at 16:59 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 18 March 2060 at 18:59 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 365 341 km (227 012 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 197 km (252 399 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 11:03 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 20 March 2060 at 15:22 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 11:03 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
8 days since the previous standstill on 27 February 2060 at 00:51 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.445°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.537° at the point of next northern standstill on 10 March 2060 at 14:36 in ♊ Gemini.
In 10 days on 17 March 2060 at 03:41 in ♍ Virgo 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.
