Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 4 October 2070 at 07:01.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2070 after 11 days on 19 October 2070 at 18:59.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 875 of Meeus index or 1828 from Brown series.
Length of current 875 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 41 minutes. It is 2 hours and 30 minutes shorter than next lunation 876 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠100.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠134.9°. 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 perigee on 24 September 2070 at 22:02 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 October 2070 at 07:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 404 172 km (251 141 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 811 km (251 538 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 4 October 2070 at 16:29 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 October 2070 at 01:49 in ♈ Aries.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 26 September 2070 at 13:29 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.394°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.377° in the next southern standstill on 10 October 2070 at 08:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 11 days on 19 October 2070 at 18:59 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
