Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 21 June 2001 at 11:58.
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 3.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1951" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2001 after 13 days on 5 July 2001 at 15:04.
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 18 of Meeus index or 971 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 47 minutes. It is 36 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 57 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 12 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠324.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠342.5°.
10 days after point of apogee on 11 June 2001 at 19:48 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 June 2001 at 17:14 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 367 478 km (228 340 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 135 km (225 642 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 21 June 2001 at 22:11 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 5 July 2001 at 00:48 in ♑ Capricorn.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 07:47 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠23.418°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-23.413° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 5 July 2001 at 12:19.
In 13 days on 5 July 2001 at 15:04 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
