Crescent ♍ Virgo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1867" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2074 after 14 days on 5 September 2074 at 13:13.
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 14:59 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 923 of Meeus index or 1876 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 29 minutes is the length of new lunation 923. It is 46 minutes longer than next lunation 924 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 54 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠286°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠314.8°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 15 August 2074 at 07:04 in ♉ Taurus. 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 28 August 2074 at 10:58 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 383 903 km (238 546 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 559 km (229 633 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 20 August 2074 at 13:23 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 September 2074 at 12:11 in ♒ Aquarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 18 August 2074 at 20:33 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.021°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.072° in the next southern standstill on 31 August 2074 at 23:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
