Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 5 July 2079 at 23:31.
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 about ∠20° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2079 after 2 days on 14 July 2079 at 03:24.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 983 of Meeus index or 1936 from Brown series.
Length of current 983 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 2 minutes. It is 1 hour and 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 984 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 42 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 27 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠12°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠28.8°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 01:15, this is 12 days after last perigee on 28 June 2079 at 08:30 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 26 July 2079 at 14:32 in ♋ Cancer.
This apogee Moon is 405 829 km (252 170 mi) away from Earth. It is 421 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 880 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after its descending node on 7 July 2079 at 02:33 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 July 2079 at 12:53 in ♈ Aries.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 28 June 2079 at 21:27 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.935°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.936° in the next southern standstill on 12 July 2079 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 days on 14 July 2079 at 03:24 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
