Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 4 August 2079 at 14:28.
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 ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2079 after 3 days on 12 August 2079 at 17:00.
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 984 of Meeus index or 1937 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 29 minutes. It is 2 hours and 34 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 4 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠28.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠50.5°.
1 day after point of apogee on 7 August 2079 at 14:51 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 August 2079 at 09:43 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 404 233 km (251 179 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 372 km (227 653 mi).
6 days after descending node on 3 August 2079 at 04:34 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 17 August 2079 at 13:43 in ♈ Aries.
18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 8 August 2079 at 23:04 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.063°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.160° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 August 2079 at 14:13 in ♊ Gemini.
In 3 days on 12 August 2079 at 17:00 in ♒ Aquarius 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.
