Crescent ♍ Virgo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2018 after 14 days on 26 August 2018 at 11:56.
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 09:58 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 230 of Meeus index or 1183 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 4 minutes. It is 1 hour and 41 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 4 hours and 40 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠11.2°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠28°.
1 day after point of perigee on 10 August 2018 at 18:05 in ♌ Leo. 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 23 August 2018 at 11:23 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 364 391 km (226 422 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 744 km (252 118 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 10 August 2018 at 13:40 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 August 2018 at 04:51 in ♒ Aquarius.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 8 August 2018 at 22:33 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.757°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.773° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 August 2018 at 02:58 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
