Crescent ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1940" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2043 after 15 days on 22 July 2043 at 03:24.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 17:51 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 538 of Meeus index or 1491 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 23 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 4 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 57 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠33.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠57.1°.
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 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 16 July 2043 at 14:34 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 369 420 km (229 547 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 723 km (251 483 mi).
6 days after ascending node on 29 June 2043 at 18:46 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 July 2043 at 12:01 in ♎ Libra.
6 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 5 July 2043 at 19:20 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.429°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.464° at the point of next southern standstill on 19 July 2043 at 20:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
