Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 22 July 2030 at 08:07.
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 ∠19° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2030 after 17 days on 13 August 2030 at 10:44.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 377 of Meeus index or 1330 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 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 52 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 10 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠213.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠244.5°.
1 day after point of apogee on 25 July 2030 at 04:55 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 9 August 2030 at 22:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 404 949 km (251 624 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 14 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 742 km (227 883 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 05:01 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 8 August 2030 at 19:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 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 10:14 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠22.659°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-22.572° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 9 August 2030 at 01:58.
In 3 days on 30 July 2030 at 11:11 in ♌ Leo 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.
