Crescent ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1911" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2010 after 13 days on 26 June 2010 at 11:30.
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 11:15 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 129 of Meeus index or 1082 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 26 minutes. It is 58 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 18 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠311.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠332.7°.
8 days after point of apogee on 3 June 2010 at 16:50 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 15 June 2010 at 14:54 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 375 063 km (233 053 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 937 km (227 383 mi).
12 days after ascending node on 30 May 2010 at 18:07 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 13 June 2010 at 21:54 in ♋ Cancer.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 07:06 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠25.030°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-25.038° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 25 June 2010 at 05:09.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
