Moon* ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 16 July 2017 at 19:26.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2017 after 16 days on 7 August 2017 at 18:11.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 216 of Meeus index or 1169 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 15 minutes. It is 1 hour and 30 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 29 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 40 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠11°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠27.9°.
1 day after point of perigee on 21 July 2017 at 17:09 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 2 August 2017 at 17:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 365 787 km (227 290 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 026 km (251 671 mi).
10 days after descending node on 12 July 2017 at 05:17 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 25 July 2017 at 00:46 in ♍ Virgo.
24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 21 July 2017 at 22:11 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.413°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.393° at the point of next southern standstill on 4 August 2017 at 18:17 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 1 day on 23 July 2017 at 09:46 in ♌ Leo 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.
