Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 31 July 2044 at 17:40.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2044 after 2 days on 8 August 2044 at 21:14.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 551 of Meeus index or 1504 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 56 minutes. It is 2 hours and 1 minute shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 49 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 21 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠16°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠34°.
1 day after point of apogee on 5 August 2044 at 05:22 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 20 August 2044 at 23:01 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 405 092 km (251 712 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 14 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 698 km (225 370 mi).
10 days after descending node on 27 July 2044 at 09:02 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 10 August 2044 at 20:20 in ♓ Pisces.
22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 4 August 2044 at 16:59 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.410°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.458° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 August 2044 at 17:17 in ♊ Gemini.
In 2 days on 8 August 2044 at 21:14 in ♒ Aquarius 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.
