Crescent ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2071 after 14 days on 12 July 2071 at 08:25.
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 18:21 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 884 of Meeus index or 1837 from Brown series.
29 days, 6 hours and 36 minutes is the length of new lunation 884. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2071. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 885 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠350.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠5.3°. 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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 15 June 2071 at 11:49 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 June 2071 at 08:00 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 364 415 km (226 437 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 750 km (222 296 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 21 June 2071 at 02:58 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 July 2071 at 14:17 in ♍ Virgo.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 07:57 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.410°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.403° in its southern standstill point on 10 July 2071 at 15:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
