Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 27 September 2030 at 09:55.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1917".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2030 after 8 days on 11 October 2030 at 10:47.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 380 of Meeus index or 1333 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 22 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2030. It is 8 minutes shorter 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 22 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 47 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠310.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠332.4°.
1 day after point of perigee on 30 September 2030 at 15:39 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 16 October 2030 at 13:21 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 363 319 km (225 756 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 14 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 078 km (251 704 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 1 October 2030 at 22:00 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 October 2030 at 13:20 in ♊ Gemini.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 13:26 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-22.097°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠21.995° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 16 October 2030 at 09:43.
In 8 days on 11 October 2030 at 10:47 in ♈ Aries the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
