Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 3 June 2019 at 10:02.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1933" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2019 after 11 days on 17 June 2019 at 08:31.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 240 of Meeus index or 1193 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 14 minutes. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes longer 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 3 hours and 30 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 39 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠296.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠321.4°.
9 days after point of apogee on 26 May 2019 at 13:27 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 7 June 2019 at 23:21 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 370 892 km (230 462 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 508 km (228 980 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 22:46 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 19 June 2019 at 01:49 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 22:46 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
At 12:58 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠22.361°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-22.381° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 18 June 2019 at 15:33.
In 11 days on 17 June 2019 at 08:31 in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
