Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 29 August 2074 at 12:12.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1919" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2074 after 3 days on 5 September 2074 at 13:13.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 923 of Meeus index or 1876 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 29 minutes. It is 46 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 2 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 54 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠286°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠314.8°.
5 days after point of perigee on 28 August 2074 at 10:58 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 12 September 2074 at 02:10 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 373 429 km (232 038 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 457 km (251 318 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 12:11 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 16 September 2074 at 20:14 in ♋ Cancer.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 31 August 2074 at 23:27 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.072°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.157° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 September 2074 at 04:44 in ♋ Cancer.
In 3 days on 5 September 2074 at 13:13 in ♓ Pisces 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.
