Gibbous ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 10 October 2079 at 17:23.
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 ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1924".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2079 after 25 days on 9 November 2079 at 04:34.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 02:01, this is 11 days after last apogee on 2 October 2079 at 03:57 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 29 October 2079 at 23:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 366 588 km (227 787 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 080 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 3 768 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after its ascending node on 11 October 2079 at 01:09 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 October 2079 at 00:33 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.
11 days after previous South standstill on 2 October 2079 at 14:22 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.371°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.379° in the next northern standstill on 16 October 2079 at 01:29 in ♋ Cancer.
After 10 days on 24 October 2079 at 18:19 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
