Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 17 October 2039 at 19:09.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1928".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2039 after 9 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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 492 of Meeus index or 1445 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 37 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2039. It is 9 minutes shorter 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 2 hours and 7 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 2 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠321.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠340.7°.
2 days after point of perigee on 20 October 2039 at 05:11 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 5 November 2039 at 04:29 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 363 557 km (225 904 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 13 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 534 km (251 987 mi).
1 day after descending node on 21 October 2039 at 04:37 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 3 November 2039 at 19:55 in ♊ Gemini.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days 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 day to face maximum declination of ∠-25.344° at the point of next southern standstill on 23 October 2039 at 01:02 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 9 days on 31 October 2039 at 22:36 in ♉ Taurus 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.
