Crescent ♎ Libra
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1832" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2070 after 15 days on 19 October 2070 at 18:59.
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 07:01 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 875 of Meeus index or 1828 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 41 minutes. It is 2 hours and 30 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 2 hours and 57 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 6 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠100.2°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠134.9°.
9 days after point of perigee on 24 September 2070 at 22:02 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 10 October 2070 at 07:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 391 305 km (243 146 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 811 km (251 538 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♎ Libra at 16:29 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 19 October 2070 at 01:49 in ♈ Aries.
At 16:29 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
7 days since the previous standstill on 26 September 2070 at 13:29 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.394°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.377° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 October 2070 at 08:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
