Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 30 June 2043 at 02:53.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1957" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2043 after 16 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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 537 of Meeus index or 1490 from Brown series.
Length of current 537 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 538 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠15.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠33.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
1 day after point of perigee on 4 July 2043 at 16:08 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 July 2043 at 14:34 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 366 316 km (227 618 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 723 km (251 483 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 29 June 2043 at 18:46 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 July 2043 at 12:01 in ♎ Libra.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 19:20 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.429°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.464° in its southern standstill point on 19 July 2043 at 20:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 6 July 2043 at 17:51 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
