Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 24 June 2038 at 12:39.
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 first ∠3° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1784" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2038 after 16 days on 16 July 2038 at 11:48.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
2 days after point of apogee on 26 June 2038 at 12:55 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 11 July 2038 at 19:32 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 401 714 km (249 614 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 535 km (228 997 mi).
11 days after descending node on 18 June 2038 at 02:42 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 2 July 2038 at 12:47 in ♋ Cancer.
24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 18 June 2038 at 05:58 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.039°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.041° at the point of next northern standstill on 2 July 2038 at 16:20 in ♋ Cancer.
In 3 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.
