Crescent ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2013 after 13 days on 23 June 2013 at 11:32.
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 15:56 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 166 of Meeus index or 1119 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 18 minutes. It is 42 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 34 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 29 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠168.8°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠191.6°.
Moon is at apogee at 21:40. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 26 May 2013 at 01:45 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 23 June 2013 at 11:09 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 406 487 km (252 579 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 079 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 222 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
3 days after descending node on 6 June 2013 at 00:59 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 20 June 2013 at 09:51 in ♏ Scorpio.
16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 8 June 2013 at 19:16 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.200°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.186° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 June 2013 at 16:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
