Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 17 June 2038 at 02:30.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1894" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2038 after 27 days on 16 July 2038 at 11:48.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
3 days after point of perigee on 14 June 2038 at 15:26 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 26 June 2038 at 12:55 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 378 515 km (235 198 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 680 km (251 456 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 02:42 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 2 July 2038 at 12:47 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
At 05:58 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-23.039°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠23.041° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 2 July 2038 at 16:20.
In 14 days on 2 July 2038 at 13:32 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.
