Moon ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 16 July 2074 at 01:11.
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 ∠11° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1797" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2074 after 15 days on 7 August 2074 at 02:06.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 921 of Meeus index or 1874 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 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 44 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 19 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠218.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠250.9°.
3 days after point of apogee on 18 July 2074 at 12:55 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 3 August 2074 at 03:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 398 880 km (247 853 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 536 km (228 376 mi).
12 days after descending node on 9 July 2074 at 19:46 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 24 July 2074 at 05:30 in ♌ Leo.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 12:38 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠21.003°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-21.001° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 4 August 2074 at 17:04.
In 1 day on 24 July 2074 at 03:07 in ♌ Leo 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.
