Crescent ♌ Leo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1834" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2074 after 13 days on 7 August 2074 at 02:06.
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 03:07 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 922 of Meeus index or 1875 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 52 minutes is the length of new lunation 922. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes longer than next lunation 923 length.
Length of current synodic month is 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠250.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠286°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 18 July 2074 at 12:55 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 August 2074 at 03:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 390 911 km (242 901 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 536 km (228 376 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 05:30 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 6 August 2074 at 05:19 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 05:30 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
1 day after previous North standstill on 22 July 2074 at 12:38 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.003°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.001° in the next southern standstill on 4 August 2074 at 17:04 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
