Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 5 July 2079 at 23:31.
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 ∠20° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2079 after 2 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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 983 of Meeus index or 1936 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 2 minutes. It is 1 hour and 27 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 42 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 27 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠12°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠28.8°.
Moon is at apogee at 01:15. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 28 June 2079 at 08:30 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 26 July 2079 at 14:32 in ♋ Cancer.
This apogee Moon is 405 829 km (252 170 mi) away from Earth. It is 421 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 880 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after descending node on 7 July 2079 at 02:33 in ♎ Libra. 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 21 July 2079 at 12:53 in ♈ Aries.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 28 June 2079 at 21:27 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.935°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-27.936° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 July 2079 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 days on 14 July 2079 at 03:24 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
