Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 2 July 2015 at 02:20.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1948" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2015 after 26 days on 31 July 2015 at 10:43.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 191 of Meeus index or 1144 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 19 minutes. It is 2 hours and 10 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 25 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 44 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠78.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠112.8°.
10 days after point of apogee on 23 June 2015 at 17:01 in ♍ Virgo. 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 5 July 2015 at 18:54 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 367 892 km (228 597 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 095 km (228 102 mi).
9 days after ascending node on 24 June 2015 at 17:23 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 July 2015 at 00:07 in ♈ Aries.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 1 July 2015 at 06:48 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.445°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.417° at the point of next northern standstill on 14 July 2015 at 04:24 in ♊ Gemini.
In 11 days on 16 July 2015 at 01:24 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.
