Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 10 June 2044 at 15:16.
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 ∠24° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2044 after 26 days on 10 July 2044 at 06:22.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 549 of Meeus index or 1502 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 45 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2044. It is 1 minute 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 59 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 10 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠345.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠0.7°.
1 day after point of apogee on 11 June 2044 at 18:31 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 25 June 2044 at 09:26 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 403 874 km (250 956 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 175 km (221 938 mi).
10 days after descending node on 3 June 2044 at 00:16 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 17 June 2044 at 14:53 in ♓ Pisces.
22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 11 June 2044 at 06:08 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.277°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.296° at the point of next northern standstill on 24 June 2044 at 23:31 in ♊ Gemini.
In 11 days on 25 June 2044 at 10:24 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.
