Crescent ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 2 July 2038 at 13:32.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1857" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2038 after 12 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠259.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠293.3°.
6 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 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 11 July 2038 at 19:32 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 385 935 km (239 809 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 535 km (228 997 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 2 July 2038 at 12:47 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 July 2038 at 11:58 in ♑ Capricorn.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 2 July 2038 at 16:20 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.041°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.036° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 July 2038 at 15:12 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 12 days on 16 July 2038 at 11:48 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
