Crescent ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 10 October 2039 at 08:59.
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 ∠0° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1791" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2039 after 20 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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
3 days 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 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 20 October 2039 at 05:11 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 400 275 km (248 719 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 947 km (226 146 mi).
3 days after ascending node on 7 October 2039 at 15:37 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 21 October 2039 at 04:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 9 October 2039 at 20:04 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.247°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.344° at the point of next southern standstill on 23 October 2039 at 01:02 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 6 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.
