Moon ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 25 July 2019 at 01:18.
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 ∠15° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1930" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2019 after 16 days on 15 August 2019 at 12:29.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 241 of Meeus index or 1194 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 56 minutes. It is 31 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 21 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠321.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠340.5°.
9 days after point of apogee on 21 July 2019 at 00:01 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 2 August 2019 at 07:08 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 371 422 km (230 791 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 398 km (223 320 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 17:02 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 12 August 2019 at 14:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 17:02 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
At 08:10 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠22.384°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-22.399° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 12 August 2019 at 04:28.
In 1 day on 1 August 2019 at 03:12 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
