Moon* ♑ Capricorn
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 99% and growing larger. The 13 days young Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 5 July 2014 at 11:59.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1951" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2014 after 1 day 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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°.
10 days after point of apogee on 30 June 2014 at 19:09 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 13 July 2014 at 08:27 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 367 444 km (228 319 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 259 km (222 612 mi).
5 days after ascending node on 6 July 2014 at 09:50 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 18 July 2014 at 21:21 in ♈ Aries.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 10 July 2014 at 17:29 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.982°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.934° at the point of next northern standstill on 23 July 2014 at 15:36 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day 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.
