Moon* ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 7 days on 6 June 2079 at 11:18.
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 about ∠11° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2079 after 1 day on 14 June 2079 at 12:39.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 982 of Meeus index or 1935 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 50 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2079. It is 12 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 5 hours and 54 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 15 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠356.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠12°.
Moon is at apogee at 18:54. It is 13 days after previous perigee on 30 May 2079 at 23:00 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next perigee on 28 June 2079 at 08:30 in ♊ Gemini.
This apogee Moon is 406 321 km (252 476 mi) away from Earth. It is 913 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 388 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
3 days after descending node on 10 June 2079 at 00:43 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 June 2079 at 10:51 in ♈ Aries.
16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 1 June 2079 at 11:25 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.971°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-27.928° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 June 2079 at 11:49 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 1 day on 14 June 2079 at 12:39 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
