Quarter* ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 7 days on 2 October 2039 at 07:23.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2039 after 22 days on 31 October 2039 at 22:36.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 apogee on 8 October 2039 at 10:06 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 20 October 2039 at 05:11 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 404 694 km (251 465 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 947 km (226 146 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 7 October 2039 at 15:37 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 21 October 2039 at 04:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 20:04 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠25.247°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-25.344° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 23 October 2039 at 01:02.
In 8 days on 17 October 2039 at 19:09 in ♎ Libra 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.
