Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 3 June 2038 at 00:24.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1824" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2038 after 12 days on 17 June 2038 at 02:30.
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 475 of Meeus index or 1428 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours 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 24 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 39 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠226°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠259.5°.
5 days after point of apogee on 29 May 2038 at 20:16 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 14 June 2038 at 15:26 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 392 883 km (244 126 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 752 km (226 025 mi).
13 days after descending node on 21 May 2038 at 17:34 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 5 June 2038 at 06:06 in ♋ Cancer.
26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
13 days since the previous standstill on 21 May 2038 at 19:28 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.982°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠23.031° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 June 2038 at 09:24 in ♋ Cancer.
In 12 days on 17 June 2038 at 02:30 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
