Crescent ♌ Leo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1810" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2021 after 13 days on 24 July 2021 at 02:37.
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 01:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 266 of Meeus index or 1219 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 34 minutes. It is 1 hour and 32 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 11 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 59 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠230.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠264.3°.
4 days after point of apogee on 5 July 2021 at 14:48 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 July 2021 at 10:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 395 924 km (246 016 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 520 km (226 502 mi).
3 days after ascending node on 6 July 2021 at 22:41 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 20 July 2021 at 13:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 9 July 2021 at 10:05 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.622°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.643° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 July 2021 at 15:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
