Moon* ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2017 after 15 days on 9 July 2017 at 04:07.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 19:44 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 215 of Meeus index or 1168 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 46 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2017. It is 29 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 5 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 11 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠356°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠11°.
Moon is at perigee at 10:49. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 8 June 2017 at 22:21 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 6 July 2017 at 04:27 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 357 938 km (222 412 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 570 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 418 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
8 days after descending node on 15 June 2017 at 02:40 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 27 June 2017 at 16:26 in ♌ Leo.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 11 June 2017 at 03:36 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.428°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠19.434° at the point of next northern standstill on 24 June 2017 at 11:12 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
