Crescent ♌ Leo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2008 after 14 days on 18 July 2008 at 07:59.
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 02:19 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 105 of Meeus index or 1058 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠20.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠39.2°.
1 day after point of perigee on 1 July 2008 at 21:22 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 14 July 2008 at 04:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 367 290 km (228 223 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 452 km (251 936 mi).
10 days after ascending node on 22 June 2008 at 23:17 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 5 July 2008 at 15:53 in ♌ Leo.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 1 July 2008 at 21:36 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.541°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.566° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 July 2008 at 15:03 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
