Crescent ♌ Leo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2019 after 14 days on 15 August 2019 at 12:29.
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 03:12 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 242 of Meeus index or 1195 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 25 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2019. It is 24 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 19 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 50 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠340.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠356.3°.
11 days after point of apogee on 21 July 2019 at 00:01 in ♓ Pisces. 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 2 August 2019 at 07:08 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 365 170 km (226 906 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 398 km (223 320 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 30 July 2019 at 17:02 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 August 2019 at 14:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
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 30 July 2019 at 08:10 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.384°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.399° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 August 2019 at 04:28 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
