Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 21 August 2030 at 01:15.
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 ∠15° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2030 after 20 days on 11 September 2030 at 21:18.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 378 of Meeus index or 1331 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour and 9 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 48 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 21 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠244.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠279.9°.
1 day after point of apogee on 21 August 2030 at 22:49 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 4 September 2030 at 17:06 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 405 393 km (251 900 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 884 km (229 835 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 08:09 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 4 September 2030 at 20:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 18:22 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠22.465°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-22.341° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 5 September 2030 at 08:00.
In 6 days on 28 August 2030 at 23:07 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.
