Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 21 July 2079 at 17:54.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2079 after 18 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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
14 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 26 July 2079 at 14:32 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 363 321 km (225 757 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 454 km (224 597 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 21 July 2079 at 12:53 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 August 2079 at 04:34 in ♎ Libra.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 12 July 2079 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.936°. Next day 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 2 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.
