Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 22 June 2043 at 14:20.
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 ∠25° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1821" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2043 after 27 days on 22 July 2043 at 03:24.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 537 of Meeus index or 1490 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 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 5 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 41 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠15.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠33.6°.
5 days after point of apogee on 18 June 2043 at 23:28 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 4 July 2043 at 16:08 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 393 569 km (244 552 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 588 km (225 302 mi).
9 days after descending node on 15 June 2043 at 09:52 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 June 2043 at 18:46 in ♓ Pisces.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 22 June 2043 at 14:03 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.403°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.429° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 July 2043 at 19:20 in ♊ Gemini.
In 12 days on 6 July 2043 at 17:51 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.
