Crescent ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 29 July 2068 at 03:55.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2068 after 10 days on 13 August 2068 at 09:51.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 848 of Meeus index or 1801 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 34 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes 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 1 hour and 50 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 13 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠133.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠160.5°.
Moon is at apogee at 08:59. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 17 July 2068 at 14:05 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 14 August 2068 at 15:33 in ♓ Pisces.
This apogee Moon is 405 607 km (252 033 mi) away from Earth. It is 199 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 102 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
9 days after descending node on 23 July 2068 at 23:15 in ♉ Taurus. 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 7 August 2068 at 11:02 in ♏ Scorpio.
22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 25 July 2068 at 08:58 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.350°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.234° at the point of next southern standstill on 9 August 2068 at 00:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 10 days on 13 August 2068 at 09:51 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.
