Crescent ♋ Cancer
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 1% and growing larger. The 1 day young Moon is in ♋ Cancer.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 22 June 2028 at 18:27.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1922" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2028 after 13 days on 6 July 2028 at 18:11.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 352 of Meeus index or 1305 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 34 minutes. It is 52 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 4 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠308.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠330.4°.
9 days after point of apogee on 14 June 2028 at 04:46 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 26 June 2028 at 04:14 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 373 013 km (231 780 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 533 km (227 753 mi).
13 days after ascending node on 10 June 2028 at 02:18 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 June 2028 at 06:42 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 21 June 2028 at 22:15 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.920°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.933° at the point of next southern standstill on 4 July 2028 at 18:46 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 13 days on 6 July 2028 at 18:11 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
