Moon* ♋ Cancer
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 2% and getting smaller. The 28 days old Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 22 June 2030 at 17:19.
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 ∠22° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2030 after 15 days on 15 July 2030 at 02:12.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 376 of Meeus index or 1329 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 13 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 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 29 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 34 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠189°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠213.7°.
1 day after point of apogee on 27 June 2030 at 14:14 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 13 July 2030 at 05:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 404 297 km (251 219 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 792 km (224 807 mi).
1 day after descending node on 28 June 2030 at 23:50 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 July 2030 at 14:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 02:45 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠22.734°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-22.706° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 12 July 2030 at 17:53.
In 1 day on 30 June 2030 at 21:34 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.
