Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 21 August 2070 at 19:54.
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 about ∠18° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1921" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2070 after 25 days on 20 September 2070 at 07:47.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 873 of Meeus index or 1826 from Brown series.
Length of current 873 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 37 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 874 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 7 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 2 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠40.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠66.1°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 15 August 2070 at 17:17 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 August 2070 at 22:39 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 373 048 km (231 801 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 889 km (229 217 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 10:33 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 7 September 2070 at 08:29 in ♎ Libra.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 16 August 2070 at 16:29 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.601°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.509° in the next northern standstill on 30 August 2070 at 07:55 in ♊ Gemini.
After 10 days on 4 September 2070 at 18:29 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
