Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 18 June 2025 at 19:19.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2025 after 17 days on 10 July 2025 at 20:37.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 314 of Meeus index or 1267 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 29 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2025. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 54 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠17.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠36.2°.
Moon is at perigee at 04:43. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 7 June 2025 at 10:42 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 5 July 2025 at 02:29 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 363 178 km (225 668 mi) away from Earth. It is 670 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 7 178 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
5 days after ascending node on 18 June 2025 at 09:41 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 1 July 2025 at 03:46 in ♍ Virgo.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 11 June 2025 at 23:54 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.394°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠28.402° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 June 2025 at 01:43 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day on 25 June 2025 at 10:31 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.
