Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 16 June 2072 at 09:57.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2072 after 9 days on 30 June 2072 at 10:21.
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 896 of Meeus index or 1849 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 59 minutes. It is 34 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 4 hours and 45 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠313.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠333.8°.
1 day after point of perigee on 19 June 2072 at 10:24 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 5 July 2072 at 05:53 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 363 458 km (225 842 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 14 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 994 km (251 652 mi).
12 days after descending node on 8 June 2072 at 10:43 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 21 June 2072 at 16:43 in ♍ Virgo.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 17 June 2072 at 00:01 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.692°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.704° at the point of next southern standstill on 30 June 2072 at 01:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 9 days on 30 June 2072 at 10:21 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
