Crescent ♌ Leo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1944" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2072 after 14 days on 30 July 2072 at 00:17.
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 17:56 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 897 of Meeus index or 1850 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 25 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2072. It is 21 minutes shorter 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 5 hours and 19 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 50 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠333.8°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠350.4°.
10 days after point of apogee on 5 July 2072 at 05:53 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 17 July 2072 at 07:53 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 368 739 km (229 124 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 898 km (224 252 mi).
9 days after descending node on 5 July 2072 at 13:03 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 18 July 2072 at 20:41 in ♍ Virgo.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 14 July 2072 at 10:48 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.668°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.639° at the point of next southern standstill on 27 July 2072 at 08:30 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
