Crescent ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2026 after 14 days on 29 June 2026 at 23:57.
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 02:54 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 327 of Meeus index or 1280 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 49 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2026. It is 1 hour and 4 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 55 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 14 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠2.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠18°.
1 day after point of perigee on 14 June 2026 at 23:18 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 June 2026 at 07:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 363 567 km (225 910 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 267 km (252 443 mi).
8 days after ascending node on 7 June 2026 at 06:19 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 19 June 2026 at 17:57 in ♌ Leo.
8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 05:29 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠27.989°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-27.988° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 28 June 2026 at 22:06.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
