Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 11 August 2039 at 19:36.
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 ∠9° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2039 after 20 days on 2 September 2039 at 19:23.
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 489 of Meeus index or 1442 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 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 12 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 51 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠226.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠260.1°.
Moon is at apogee at 19:35. It is 11 days after previous perigee on 1 August 2039 at 22:38 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 29 August 2039 at 03:16 in ♑ Capricorn.
This apogee Moon is 404 503 km (251 347 mi) away from Earth. It is 905 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 206 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 days after descending node on 31 July 2039 at 22:26 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 14 August 2039 at 10:57 in ♊ Gemini.
26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 2 August 2039 at 07:15 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.732°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.786° at the point of next northern standstill on 16 August 2039 at 04:38 in ♋ Cancer.
In 6 days on 19 August 2039 at 20:50 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.
