Crescent ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1835" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2038 after 13 days on 16 July 2038 at 11:48.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 13:32 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 476 of Meeus index or 1429 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 8 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 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 33 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠259.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠293.3°.
5 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 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 11 July 2038 at 19:32 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 390 600 km (242 708 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 535 km (228 997 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 12:47 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 15 July 2038 at 11:58 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 12:47 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
At 16:20 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠23.041°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-23.036° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 15 July 2038 at 15:12.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
