Crescent ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 16 June 2074 at 09:57.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2074 after 18 days on 8 July 2074 at 17:05.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
Moon is at apogee at 21:28. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 8 June 2074 at 10:20 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next perigee on 6 July 2074 at 14:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 405 879 km (252 202 mi) away from Earth. It is 471 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 830 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
8 days after descending node on 12 June 2074 at 10:42 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 June 2074 at 23:07 in ♋ Cancer.
20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
9 days 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 4 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 4 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.
