Crescent ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1915" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2069 after 15 days on 4 July 2069 at 13:05.
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 02:14 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 859 of Meeus index or 1812 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 59 minutes is the length of new lunation 859. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 860 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 45 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 24 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠40.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠66.4°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 16 June 2069 at 13:22 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 June 2069 at 10:15 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 374 271 km (232 561 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 412 km (251 290 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 15 June 2069 at 23:37 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 June 2069 at 14:55 in ♏ Scorpio.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 18 June 2069 at 12:47 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.940°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.920° in the next southern standstill on 2 July 2069 at 18:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
