Quarter* ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 14 July 2079 at 03:24.
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 ∠12° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1909" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2079 after 23 days on 12 August 2079 at 17:00.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 11 July 2079 at 01:15 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 26 July 2079 at 14:32 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 375 510 km (233 331 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 454 km (224 597 mi).
13 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 July 2079 at 12:53 in ♈ Aries.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 12 July 2079 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.936°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.003° in the next northern standstill on 26 July 2079 at 06:44 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 days on 28 July 2079 at 08:33 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
