Crescent ♍ Virgo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1797" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2040 after 14 days on 20 September 2040 at 17:43.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 15:13 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 503 of Meeus index or 1456 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 12 minutes. It is 42 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 28 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 35 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠226.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠261.6°.
4 days after point of apogee on 2 September 2040 at 10:15 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 18 September 2040 at 06:43 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 398 913 km (247 873 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 882 km (226 106 mi).
8 days after ascending node on 28 August 2040 at 19:18 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 September 2040 at 06:11 in ♏ Scorpio.
8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 1 September 2040 at 03:14 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.397°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.529° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 September 2040 at 06:36 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
