Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 9% and growing larger. The 3 days young Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 18 November 2093 at 19:57.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1943".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2093 after 11 days on 2 December 2093 at 22:24.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1161 of Meeus index or 2114 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 50 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 54 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 15 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠314.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠335.6°.
Moon is at perigee at 17:56. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 9 November 2093 at 23:18 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next apogee on 7 December 2093 at 19:07 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 365 650 km (227 204 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 142 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 706 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 days after ascending node on 8 November 2093 at 15:46 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 22 November 2093 at 07:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 22:15 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-22.406°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠22.462° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 5 December 2093 at 10:39.
In 11 days on 2 December 2093 at 22:24 in ♊ Gemini 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.
