Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 14 June 2079 at 12:39.
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.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1781" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2079 after 27 days on 14 July 2079 at 03:24.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 982 of Meeus index or 1935 from Brown series.
Length of current 982 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 50 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2079. It is 12 minutes shorter than next lunation 983 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠356.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠12°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 13 June 2079 at 18:54 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 June 2079 at 08:30 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 402 351 km (250 009 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 090 km (222 507 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 10 June 2079 at 00:43 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 June 2079 at 10:51 in ♈ Aries.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 15 June 2079 at 11:49 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.928°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.935° in the next northern standstill on 28 June 2079 at 21:27 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 days on 29 June 2079 at 01:31 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
