Crescent ♓ Pisces
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 31% and getting smaller. The 24 days old Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 23 April 2060 at 18:53.
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 leaving the last ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♓ Pisces later.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1937" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2060 after 20 days on 15 May 2060 at 13:39.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
10 days after point of apogee on 14 April 2060 at 20:02 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 29 April 2060 at 14:53 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 370 042 km (229 933 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 297 km (222 635 mi).
8 days after descending node on 16 April 2060 at 20:33 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 30 April 2060 at 05:58 in ♉ Taurus.
22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 21 April 2060 at 15:27 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.732°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.728° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 May 2060 at 05:51 in ♋ Cancer.
In 4 days on 30 April 2060 at 10:11 in ♉ Taurus 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.
