Crescent ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 4 June 2046 at 15:22.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1941" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2046 after 10 days on 18 June 2046 at 13:10.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 574 of Meeus index or 1527 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 41 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠274°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠304.9°.
10 days after point of apogee on 28 May 2046 at 21:55 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 12 June 2046 at 03:54 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 369 299 km (229 472 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 663 km (229 698 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 09:42 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 21 June 2046 at 10:29 in ♒ Aquarius.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 5 June 2046 at 05:17 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.677°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.680° at the point of next southern standstill on 18 June 2046 at 02:43 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 10 days on 18 June 2046 at 13:10 in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
