Moon ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 13 July 2039 at 03:38.
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 ∠6° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2039 after 15 days on 4 August 2039 at 09:56.
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 488 of Meeus index or 1441 from Brown series.
Length of current 488 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes longer than next lunation 489 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠199.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠226.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
2 days after point of apogee on 17 July 2039 at 03:14 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 August 2039 at 22:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 403 457 km (250 697 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 901 km (226 118 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 18 July 2039 at 06:48 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 31 July 2039 at 22:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 22:01 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠24.697°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-24.732° in its southern standstill point on 2 August 2039 at 07:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day on 21 July 2039 at 07:54 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
