Crescent ♍ Virgo
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 16% and getting smaller. The 25 days old Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 10 October 2085 at 13:09.
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 ∠5° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1924".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2085 after 18 days on 1 November 2085 at 19:08.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1060 of Meeus index or 2013 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 53 minutes. It is 32 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 9 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 54 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠204.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠234.1°.
Moon is at apogee at 00:42. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 1 October 2085 at 22:42 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 29 October 2085 at 23:49 in ♓ Pisces.
This apogee Moon is 405 393 km (251 900 mi) away from Earth. It is 15 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 316 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
5 days after descending node on 8 October 2085 at 17:26 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 23 October 2085 at 05:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 8 October 2085 at 05:07 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.510°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.402° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 October 2085 at 19:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 4 days on 18 October 2085 at 17:00 in ♎ Libra 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.
