Moon* ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2018 after 15 days on 27 July 2018 at 20:20.
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 19:43 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 228 of Meeus index or 1181 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 5 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2018. It is 5 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 39 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 30 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠340.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠356°.
12 days after point of apogee on 30 June 2018 at 02:43 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 2018 at 08:28 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 364 004 km (226 182 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 432 km (222 098 mi).
11 days after descending node on 30 June 2018 at 16:44 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 14 July 2018 at 02:50 in ♌ Leo.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 12:01 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠20.761°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-20.755° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 25 July 2018 at 20:55.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
