Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 30 July 2070 at 17:17.
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 first ∠3° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2070 after 20 days on 21 August 2070 at 19:54.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 872 of Meeus index or 1825 from Brown series.
Length of current 872 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 37 minutes. It is 2 hours shorter than next lunation 873 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 7 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 2 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠21.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠40.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
13 days after point of apogee on 19 July 2070 at 01:07 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 August 2070 at 20:19 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 363 680 km (225 980 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 129 km (226 259 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 29 July 2070 at 08:38 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 August 2070 at 02:20 in ♎ Libra.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 20 July 2070 at 08:09 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.774°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.683° in the next northern standstill on 3 August 2070 at 00:42 in ♋ Cancer.
After 4 days on 6 August 2070 at 08:51 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
