Crescent ♓ Pisces
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 2% and growing larger. The 1 day young Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 11 February 2070 at 02:52.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1896" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2070 after 12 days on 25 February 2070 at 02:31.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 867 of Meeus index or 1820 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 1 minute. It is 2 hours and 22 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 16 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 47 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠282°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠312°.
8 days after point of apogee on 4 February 2070 at 01:19 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 17 February 2070 at 15:55 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 378 107 km (234 945 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 370 239 km (230 056 mi).
10 days after ascending node on 1 February 2070 at 20:26 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 February 2070 at 19:12 in ♈ Aries.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 6 February 2070 at 10:23 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.101°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.990° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 February 2070 at 18:41 in ♊ Gemini.
In 12 days on 25 February 2070 at 02:31 in ♍ Virgo 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.
