Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 13 July 2039 at 03:38.
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 first ∠1° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2039 after 18 days on 4 August 2039 at 09:56.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 488 of Meeus index or 1441 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 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 1 hour and 49 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠199.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠226.3°.
11 days after point of perigee on 4 July 2039 at 20:31 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 17 July 2039 at 03:14 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 405 089 km (251 711 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 452 km (251 936 mi).
11 days after descending node on 4 July 2039 at 14:57 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 18 July 2039 at 06:48 in ♊ Gemini.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 5 July 2039 at 22:01 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.696°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.697° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 July 2039 at 22:01 in ♋ Cancer.
In 4 days on 21 July 2039 at 07:54 in ♋ Cancer 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.
