Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 25 September 2079 at 04:06.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1832" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2079 after 14 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 986 of Meeus index or 1939 from Brown series.
Length of current 986 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 14 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 987 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 30 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 33 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠80.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠116.3°. 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°).
8 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 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 October 2079 at 03:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 391 312 km (243 150 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 405 km (251 286 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♎ Libra at 16:35 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 11 October 2079 at 01:09 in ♈ Aries.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
7 days after previous North standstill on 18 September 2079 at 20:00 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.319°. Next 6 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 14 days on 10 October 2079 at 17:23 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
