Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1933" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2070 after 17 days on 20 September 2070 at 07:47.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 873 of Meeus index or 1826 from Brown series.
Length of current 873 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 37 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 874 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 7 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 2 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠40.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠66.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
2 days after point of perigee on 30 August 2070 at 22:39 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 September 2070 at 12:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 370 856 km (230 439 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 226 km (251 174 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 25 August 2070 at 10:33 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 September 2070 at 08:29 in ♎ Libra.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 30 August 2070 at 07:55 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.509°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.435° in the next southern standstill on 13 September 2070 at 00:50 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 days on 4 September 2070 at 18:29 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
