Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 15 May 2079 at 20:58.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2079 after 27 days on 14 June 2079 at 12:39.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 981 of Meeus index or 1934 from Brown series.
Length of current 981 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes. It is 54 minutes longer than next lunation 982 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠341.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠356.9°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 17 May 2079 at 16:24 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 May 2079 at 23:00 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 404 957 km (251 629 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 272 km (221 999 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 13 May 2079 at 20:46 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 May 2079 at 04:40 in ♉ Taurus.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 5 May 2079 at 02:09 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.041°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.005° in the next southern standstill on 19 May 2079 at 06:26 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 12 days on 30 May 2079 at 18:41 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
