Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 26 August 2039 at 23:16.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2039 after 4 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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 490 of Meeus index or 1443 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 32 minutes. It is 46 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 12 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 57 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠260.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠294.5°.
Moon is at perigee at 03:16. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 13 August 2039 at 19:35 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 10 September 2039 at 14:24 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 368 737 km (229 123 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 229 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 619 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after descending node on 28 August 2039 at 01:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 10 September 2039 at 13:18 in ♊ Gemini.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 14:11 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-24.880°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠24.993° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 12 September 2039 at 12:07.
In 4 days on 2 September 2039 at 19:23 in ♓ Pisces 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.
