Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 24 June 2074 at 13:38.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1805" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2074 after 13 days on 8 July 2074 at 17:05.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 921 of Meeus index or 1874 from Brown series.
Length of current 921 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes longer than next lunation 922 length.
Length of current synodic month is 44 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 19 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠218.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠250.9°. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 20 June 2074 at 21:28 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 July 2074 at 14:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 397 170 km (246 790 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 554 km (225 281 mi).
13 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 June 2074 at 23:07 in ♋ Cancer.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 05:18 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠21.016°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-21.006° in its southern standstill point on 8 July 2074 at 08:12 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 8 July 2074 at 17:05 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
