Crescent ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 16 June 2074 at 09:57.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2074 after 18 days on 8 July 2074 at 17:05.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 920 of Meeus index or 1873 from Brown series.
Length of current 920 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 26 minutes longer than next lunation 921 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠193.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠218.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 21:28, this is 12 days after last perigee on 8 June 2074 at 10:20 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 6 July 2074 at 14:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 405 879 km (252 202 mi) away from Earth. It is 471 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 830 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
8 days after its descending node on 12 June 2074 at 10:42 in ♒ Aquarius, 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 26 June 2074 at 23:07 in ♋ Cancer.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 10 June 2074 at 21:20 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.986°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.016° in the next northern standstill on 25 June 2074 at 05:18 in ♋ Cancer.
After 4 days on 24 June 2074 at 13:38 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
