Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 41% and getting smaller. The 23 days old Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 8 March 2067 at 16:16.
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 first ∠0° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1932".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2067 after 21 days on 30 March 2067 at 20:08.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 830 of Meeus index or 1783 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 31 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2067. It is 24 minutes shorter 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 2 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 56 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠18.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠37.6°.
12 days after point of apogee on 25 February 2067 at 01:39 in ♋ Cancer. 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 13 March 2067 at 00:40 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 365 421 km (227 062 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 617 km (225 941 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 05:33 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 22 March 2067 at 03:17 in ♊ Gemini.
At 05:33 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
1 day since the previous standstill on 8 March 2067 at 17:24 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.547°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.428° at the point of next northern standstill on 21 March 2067 at 15:43 in ♊ Gemini.
In 5 days on 15 March 2067 at 08:29 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.
