Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 15% and growing larger. The 4 days young Moon is in ♏ Scorpio.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 12 September 2083 at 00:07.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1959" and ∠1908".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2083 after 10 days on 25 September 2083 at 23:25.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1035 of Meeus index or 1988 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 16 minutes. It is 24 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 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 41 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 ∠325°.
11 days after point of apogee on 3 September 2083 at 22:33 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 16 September 2083 at 04:05 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 365 905 km (227 363 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 109 km (228 732 mi).
6 days after descending node on 8 September 2083 at 21:09 in ♌ Leo. 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 21 September 2083 at 18:27 in ♒ Aquarius.
20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 5 September 2083 at 03:16 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.867°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.778° at the point of next southern standstill on 18 September 2083 at 12:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 10 days on 25 September 2083 at 23:25 in ♓ Pisces 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.
