Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1780" and ∠1920".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2059 after 13 days on 21 October 2059 at 02:15.
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 15:50 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 739 of Meeus index or 1692 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 22 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2059. It is 44 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 4 hours and 38 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 25 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠197.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠225.8°.
2 days after point of apogee on 4 October 2059 at 18:25 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 October 2059 at 23:09 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 402 742 km (250 252 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 009 km (223 078 mi).
12 days after ascending node on 25 September 2059 at 01:07 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 9 October 2059 at 12:05 in ♏ Scorpio.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 28 September 2059 at 16:57 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.089°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.180° at the point of next southern standstill on 13 October 2059 at 11:22 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
