Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2014.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°.
11 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 364 920 km (226 751 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).
6 days after ascending node on 6 July 2014 at 09:50 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 18 July 2014 at 21:21 in ♈ Aries.
6 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 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.934° at the point of next northern standstill on 23 July 2014 at 15:36 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
