Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 2 August 2029 at 11:15.
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 ∠13° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1845" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2029 after 16 days on 24 August 2029 at 01:51.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 365 of Meeus index or 1318 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 5 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 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 2 hours and 39 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 30 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠279.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠309.2°.
6 days after point of apogee on 1 August 2029 at 10:42 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 13 August 2029 at 09:55 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 388 552 km (241 435 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 368 km (227 651 mi).
1 day after descending node on 6 August 2029 at 20:21 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 19 August 2029 at 15:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 5 August 2029 at 14:53 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.323°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-24.253° at the point of next southern standstill on 18 August 2029 at 13:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 days on 10 August 2029 at 01:56 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.
