Crescent ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2022 after 14 days on 13 July 2022 at 18:37.
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 02:52 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 278 of Meeus index or 1231 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 3 minutes. It is 41 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 2 hours and 19 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 44 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠178.8°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠202°.
Moon is at apogee at 06:08. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 14 June 2022 at 23:21 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 13 July 2022 at 09:08 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 406 581 km (252 638 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2022. It is 1 173 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 128 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after ascending node on 25 June 2022 at 07:10 in ♉ Taurus. 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 9 July 2022 at 17:28 in ♏ Scorpio.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 04:06 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠26.900°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-26.921° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 12 July 2022 at 21:16.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
