Crescent ♒ Aquarius
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 30% and getting smaller. The 24 days old Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 14 March 2061 at 08:31.
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 ∠21° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1814" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2061 after 19 days on 4 April 2061 at 21:47.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 756 of Meeus index or 1709 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 52 minutes. It is 2 hours and 10 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 52 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 17 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠299.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠324.8°.
4 days after point of apogee on 12 March 2061 at 02:00 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 March 2061 at 21:11 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 395 147 km (245 533 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 081 km (225 608 mi).
7 days after descending node on 8 March 2061 at 23:14 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 22 March 2061 at 23:32 in ♈ Aries.
20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 15 March 2061 at 03:06 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.381°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.422° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 March 2061 at 01:47 in ♋ Cancer.
In 5 days on 21 March 2061 at 17:23 in ♓ Pisces 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.
