Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 6% and getting smaller. The 27 days old Moon is in ♏ Scorpio.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 23 November 2081 at 19:49.
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 ∠9° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1945" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2081 after 17 days on 16 December 2081 at 04:31.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1012 of Meeus index or 1965 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 20 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 1 hour and 12 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 57 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠29.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠52.5°.
1 day after point of perigee on 27 November 2081 at 03:46 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 9 December 2081 at 00:48 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 368 541 km (229 001 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 288 km (251 213 mi).
4 days after descending node on 24 November 2081 at 11:52 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 7 December 2081 at 17:00 in ♓ Pisces.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 19 November 2081 at 01:19 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.201°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.151° at the point of next southern standstill on 1 December 2081 at 21:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 days on 30 November 2081 at 14:36 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
