Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 23% and growing larger. The 5 days young Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 18 October 2085 at 17:00.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1910" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2085 after 9 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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1061 of Meeus index or 2014 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 21 minutes. It is 1 hour and 3 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 37 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 26 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠234.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠271.2°.
9 days after point of apogee on 14 October 2085 at 00:42 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 29 October 2085 at 23:49 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 375 258 km (233 175 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 120 km (226 875 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 05:04 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 4 November 2085 at 22:57 in ♊ Gemini.
At 05:04 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
1 day since the previous standstill on 22 October 2085 at 19:20 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.402°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.345° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 November 2085 at 14:11 in ♊ Gemini.
In 9 days on 1 November 2085 at 19:08 in ♉ Taurus 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.
