Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2030 after 19 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 24 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 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 4 September 2030 at 17:06 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 404 423 km (251 297 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 884 km (229 835 mi).
1 day after descending node on 22 August 2030 at 08:09 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 4 September 2030 at 20:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 22 August 2030 at 18:22 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.465°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.341° at the point of next southern standstill on 5 September 2030 at 08:00 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 5 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.
