Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 29 August 2074 at 12:12.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1919" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2074 after 3 days on 5 September 2074 at 13:13.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 923 of Meeus index or 1876 from Brown series.
Length of current 923 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 29 minutes. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 28 August 2074 at 10:58 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 September 2074 at 02:10 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 373 429 km (232 038 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 457 km (251 318 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 12:11 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 16 September 2074 at 20:14 in ♋ Cancer.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 31 August 2074 at 23:27 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.072°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.157° in the next northern standstill on 15 September 2074 at 04:44 in ♋ Cancer.
After 3 days on 5 September 2074 at 13:13 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
