Crescent ♎ Libra
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1864" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2070 after 14 days on 20 September 2070 at 07:47.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 18:29 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 874 of Meeus index or 1827 from Brown series.
29 days, 12 hours and 33 minutes is the length of new lunation 874. It is 3 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 875 length.
Length of current synodic month is 11 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 58 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠66.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠100.2°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 30 August 2070 at 22:39 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 September 2070 at 12:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 384 442 km (238 881 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 226 km (251 174 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 25 August 2070 at 10:33 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 September 2070 at 08:29 in ♎ Libra.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 30 August 2070 at 07:55 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.509°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.435° in the next southern standstill on 13 September 2070 at 00:50 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
