Crescent ♉ Taurus
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 11% and growing larger. The 3 days young Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 21 March 2061 at 17:23.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1924".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2061 after 11 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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 757 of Meeus index or 1710 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 44 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 2 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 7 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠324.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠343.2°.
1 day after point of perigee on 23 March 2061 at 21:11 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 15 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 8 April 2061 at 18:12 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 363 796 km (226 052 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 15 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 543 km (251 993 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 22 March 2061 at 23:32 in ♈ Aries. 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 5 April 2061 at 06:12 in ♎ Libra.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days 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 3 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 11 days on 4 April 2061 at 21:47 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.
