Quarter* ♉ Taurus
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 36% and growing larger. The 6 days young Moon is in ♈ Aries.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 21 January 2061 at 15:16.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1948".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2061 after 8 days on 4 February 2061 at 15:22.
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 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 755 of Meeus index or 1708 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 15 minutes. It is 2 hours and 23 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 1 hour and 31 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 32 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠265.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠299.9°.
12 days after point of apogee on 15 January 2061 at 08:29 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 30 January 2061 at 14:53 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 365 370 km (227 030 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 564 km (229 636 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♈ Aries at 14:07 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 9 February 2061 at 17:58 in ♎ Libra.
At 14:07 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
8 days since the previous standstill on 19 January 2061 at 10:36 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.037°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.115° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 February 2061 at 14:36 in ♊ Gemini.
In 8 days on 4 February 2061 at 15:22 in ♌ Leo 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.
