Crescent ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 27 June 2014 at 08:09.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2014 after 11 days on 12 July 2014 at 11:25.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 179 of Meeus index or 1132 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 33 minutes. It is 58 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 1 hour and 49 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠144.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠169.2°.
Moon is at apogee at 19:09. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 15 June 2014 at 03:34 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 13 July 2014 at 08:27 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 405 932 km (252 234 mi) away from Earth. It is 524 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 777 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
8 days after descending node on 21 June 2014 at 20:30 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 6 July 2014 at 09:50 in ♎ Libra.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 26 June 2014 at 08:34 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.035°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.982° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 July 2014 at 17:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 11 days on 12 July 2014 at 11:25 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
