Crescent ♌ Leo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1874" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2073 after 13 days on 19 July 2073 at 05:04.
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 07:16 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 909 of Meeus index or 1862 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 48 minutes. It is 59 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 56 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 13 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠284.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠313.1°.
7 days after point of apogee on 28 June 2073 at 01:09 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 11 July 2073 at 07:01 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 382 511 km (237 681 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 523 km (229 611 mi).
11 days after descending node on 23 June 2073 at 19:45 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 July 2073 at 01:28 in ♌ Leo.
24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 4 July 2073 at 22:14 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.610°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.591° at the point of next southern standstill on 17 July 2073 at 20:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
