Crescent ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 22 June 2079 at 09:56.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1940" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2079 after 19 days on 14 July 2079 at 03:24.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
10 days after point of apogee on 13 June 2079 at 18:54 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 28 June 2079 at 08:30 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 369 398 km (229 533 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 090 km (222 507 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♈ Aries at 10:51 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 7 July 2079 at 02:33 in ♎ Libra.
At 10:51 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
9 days since the previous standstill on 15 June 2079 at 11:49 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.928°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.935° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 June 2079 at 21:27 in ♊ Gemini.
In 4 days on 29 June 2079 at 01:31 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
