Moon* ♋ Cancer
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.
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°.
1 day after point of perigee on 4 July 2043 at 16:08 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 16 July 2043 at 14:34 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 366 316 km (227 618 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 723 km (251 483 mi).
5 days after ascending node on 29 June 2043 at 18:46 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 July 2043 at 12:01 in ♎ Libra.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 19:20 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠28.429°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-28.464° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 19 July 2043 at 20:10.
In 1 day 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.
