Moon* ♒ Aquarius
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1889".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2040.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 501 of Meeus index or 1454 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 12 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2040. It is 25 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 2 hours and 28 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 35 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠175.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠199°.
Moon is at perigee at 19:15. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 9 July 2040 at 20:13 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 5 August 2040 at 23:43 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 357 113 km (221 900 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2040. It is 5 395 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 688 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after descending node on 20 July 2040 at 02:18 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 1 August 2040 at 17:44 in ♉ Taurus.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 22 July 2040 at 14:28 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.179°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.211° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 August 2040 at 21:26 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
