Crescent ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 11 June 2042 at 01:00.
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 ∠25° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2042 after 19 days on 3 July 2042 at 08:09.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
Moon is at perigee at 22:24. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 29 May 2042 at 07:12 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 26 June 2042 at 01:31 in ♎ Libra.
This perigee Moon is 367 563 km (228 393 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 055 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 793 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♈ Aries at 12:16 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 27 June 2042 at 04:23 in ♎ Libra.
At 12:16 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
8 days 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 4 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 4 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.
