Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 3 June 2042 at 20:48.
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 ∠18° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1884" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2042 after 26 days on 3 July 2042 at 08:09.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 524 of Meeus index or 1477 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 53 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes shorter 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 3 hours and 51 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 18 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠33.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠57.3°.
8 days after point of apogee on 29 May 2042 at 07:12 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 13 June 2042 at 22:24 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 380 553 km (236 465 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 563 km (228 393 mi).
6 days after descending node on 31 May 2042 at 00:41 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 13 June 2042 at 12:16 in ♈ Aries.
20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 5 June 2042 at 11:37 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.094°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.070° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 June 2042 at 08:35 in ♋ Cancer.
In 11 days on 17 June 2042 at 19:48 in ♊ Gemini 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.
