Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 24 June 2021 at 18:40.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1897" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2021 after 26 days on 24 July 2021 at 02:37.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 265 of Meeus index or 1218 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 24 minutes. It is 1 hour and 50 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 1 hour and 40 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 23 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠202.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠230.1°.
4 days after point of perigee on 23 June 2021 at 09:58 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 5 July 2021 at 14:48 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 377 751 km (234 724 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 342 km (251 868 mi).
4 days after descending node on 23 June 2021 at 06:07 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 6 July 2021 at 22:41 in ♊ Gemini.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 25 June 2021 at 05:49 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.631°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.622° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 July 2021 at 10:05 in ♋ Cancer.
In 12 days on 10 July 2021 at 01:17 in ♋ Cancer 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.
