Quarter* ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 18 September 2039 at 08:23.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1913".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2039 after 7 days on 2 October 2039 at 07:23.
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 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 491 of Meeus index or 1444 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 46 minutes. It is 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 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 11 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠294.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠321.1°.
1 day after point of perigee on 23 September 2039 at 02:18 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 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 8 October 2039 at 10:06 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 363 313 km (225 752 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 13 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 575 km (251 391 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 01:47 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 7 October 2039 at 15:37 in ♊ Gemini.
13 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 12 September 2039 at 12:07 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.993°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-25.118° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 September 2039 at 19:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 7 days on 2 October 2039 at 07:23 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.
