Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 9 June 2074 at 09:27.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1904" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2074 after 26 days on 8 July 2074 at 17:05.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 920 of Meeus index or 1873 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 26 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 10 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 53 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠193.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠218.8°.
4 days after point of perigee on 8 June 2074 at 10:20 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 20 June 2074 at 21:28 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 376 451 km (233 916 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 879 km (252 202 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 10:42 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 26 June 2074 at 23:07 in ♋ Cancer.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 10 June 2074 at 21:20 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.986°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.016° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 June 2074 at 05:18 in ♋ Cancer.
In 12 days on 24 June 2074 at 13:38 in ♊ Gemini the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
