Crescent ♋ Cancer
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 26% and growing larger. The 5 days young Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 1 April 2060 at 01:37.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1920" and ∠1917".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2060 after 10 days on 15 April 2060 at 21:21.
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 745 of Meeus index or 1698 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 33 minutes. It is 20 minutes longer 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 11 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 58 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠358.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠13.7°.
4 days after point of perigee on 1 April 2060 at 04:11 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 14 April 2060 at 20:02 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 373 342 km (231 984 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 305 km (252 466 mi).
2 days after ascending node on 2 April 2060 at 19:04 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 16 April 2060 at 20:33 in ♏ Scorpio.
2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 25 March 2060 at 08:59 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.644°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠27.697° at the point of next northern standstill on 6 April 2060 at 21:10 in ♊ Gemini.
In 10 days on 15 April 2060 at 21:21 in ♎ Libra 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.
