Moon ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 18 September 2079 at 05:22.
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 ∠10° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1901" and ∠1913".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2079 after 17 days on 10 October 2079 at 17:23.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 985 of Meeus index or 1938 from Brown series.
Length of current 985 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 3 minutes. It is 3 hours and 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 986 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 41 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 28 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠50.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠80.4°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 18 September 2079 at 08:26 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 October 2079 at 03:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 377 107 km (234 323 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 405 km (251 286 mi).
9 days after its ascending node on 13 September 2079 at 17:20 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 September 2079 at 16:35 in ♎ Libra.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 18 September 2079 at 20:00 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.319°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.371° in the next southern standstill on 2 October 2079 at 14:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 25 September 2079 at 04:06 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
