Crescent ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1940" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2043 after 15 days on 22 July 2043 at 03:24.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 17:51 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 538 of Meeus index or 1491 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 32 minutes is the length of new lunation 538. It is 2 hours and 23 minutes shorter than next lunation 539 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠33.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠57.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
1 day after point of perigee on 4 July 2043 at 16:08 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 July 2043 at 14:34 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 369 420 km (229 547 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 723 km (251 483 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 29 June 2043 at 18:46 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 July 2043 at 12:01 in ♎ Libra.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 5 July 2043 at 19:20 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.429°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.464° in the next southern standstill on 19 July 2043 at 20:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
