Moon* ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 19 June 2014 at 18:39.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1800" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2014 after 15 days on 12 July 2014 at 11:25.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 178 of Meeus index or 1131 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 5 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 44 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 19 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠112.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠144.1°.
11 days after point of perigee on 15 June 2014 at 03:34 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 30 June 2014 at 19:09 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 398 181 km (247 418 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 932 km (252 234 mi).
4 days after descending node on 21 June 2014 at 20:30 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 6 July 2014 at 09:50 in ♎ Libra.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 08:34 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠19.035°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-18.982° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 10 July 2014 at 17:29.
In 1 day on 27 June 2014 at 08:09 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
