Crescent ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1841" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2068 after 15 days on 15 July 2068 at 02:07.
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 15:11 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 847 of Meeus index or 1800 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 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 1 minute shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 8 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠99.8°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠133.3°.
9 days after point of perigee on 20 June 2068 at 10:58 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 5 July 2068 at 16:27 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 389 443 km (241 989 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 637 km (251 430 mi).
2 days after descending node on 26 June 2068 at 20:13 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 11 July 2068 at 06:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 28 June 2068 at 02:09 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.448°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.401° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 July 2068 at 14:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
