Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days 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 ∠21° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1917".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2079 after 9 days on 10 October 2079 at 17:23.
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 6 days 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°).
13 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 October 2079 at 03:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 405 323 km (251 856 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 405 km (251 286 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 26 September 2079 at 16:35 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 October 2079 at 01:09 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 18 September 2079 at 20:00 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.319°. Next day 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 9 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.
