Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 24 July 2074 at 03:07.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1902" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2074 after 10 days on 7 August 2074 at 02:06.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 922 of Meeus index or 1875 from Brown series.
Length of current 922 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes longer than next lunation 923 length.
Length of current synodic month is 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠250.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠286°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 18 July 2074 at 12:55 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 August 2074 at 03:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 376 841 km (234 158 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 536 km (228 376 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 24 July 2074 at 05:30 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 August 2074 at 05:19 in ♒ Aquarius.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 22 July 2074 at 12:38 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.003°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.001° in the next southern standstill on 4 August 2074 at 17:04 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 10 days on 7 August 2074 at 02:06 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
