Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 4 October 2070 at 07:01.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2070 after 11 days on 19 October 2070 at 18:59.
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 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠100.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠134.9°.
13 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 10 October 2070 at 07:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 404 172 km (251 141 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 811 km (251 538 mi).
3 days after ascending node on 4 October 2070 at 16:29 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 19 October 2070 at 01:49 in ♈ Aries.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 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 day to face maximum declination of ∠-18.377° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 October 2070 at 08:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 11 days on 19 October 2070 at 18:59 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.
