Moon ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2004 after 14 days on 2 July 2004 at 11:09.
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 20:27 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 55 of Meeus index or 1008 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 57 minutes. It is 57 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 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠181.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠205.1°.
Moon is at apogee at 16:02. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 3 June 2004 at 13:10 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next perigee on 1 July 2004 at 23:00 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 406 575 km (252 634 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2004. It is 1 167 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 134 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
3 days after ascending node on 13 June 2004 at 22:49 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 28 June 2004 at 08:37 in ♏ Scorpio.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 4 June 2004 at 17:29 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.569°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠27.532° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 June 2004 at 15:35 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
