Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Waning Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 95% and getting smaller. The 16 days old Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 29 June 2083 at 16:51.
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 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1917" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2083 after 27 days on 29 July 2083 at 01:00.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1032 of Meeus index or 1985 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 17 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 1 hour and 33 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 30 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠203.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠232°.
3 days after point of perigee on 28 June 2083 at 06:42 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 10 July 2083 at 10:51 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 373 886 km (232 322 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 424 km (251 919 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 19:10 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 16 July 2083 at 06:07 in ♌ Leo.
At 19:10 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
2 days since the previous standstill on 28 June 2083 at 15:42 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.916°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.931° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 July 2083 at 11:43 in ♊ Gemini.
In 13 days on 14 July 2083 at 23:54 in ♋ Cancer 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.
