Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 6 October 2059 at 15:50.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1807" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2059 after 11 days on 21 October 2059 at 02:15.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠197.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠225.8°.
4 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 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 October 2059 at 23:09 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 396 725 km (246 513 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 009 km (223 078 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♏ Scorpio at 12:05 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 22 October 2059 at 10:13 in ♉ Taurus.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
10 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 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.180° at the point of next southern standstill on 13 October 2059 at 11:22 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 11 days on 21 October 2059 at 02:15 in ♈ Aries 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.
