Moon* ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 7 days on 1 July 2040 at 10:18.
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 about ∠7° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2040 after 15 days on 24 July 2040 at 02:05.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 500 of Meeus index or 1453 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 12 minutes. It is longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 28 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 35 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠152°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠175.9°.
13 days after point of perigee on 25 June 2040 at 09:33 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 9 July 2040 at 20:13 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 404 776 km (251 516 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 581 km (252 638 mi).
2 days after ascending node on 5 July 2040 at 15:32 in ♉ Taurus. 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 20 July 2040 at 02:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.
2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 16:14 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠26.142°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-26.179° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 22 July 2040 at 14:28.
In 1 day on 9 July 2040 at 09:15 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.
