Crescent ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 20 August 2079 at 00:00.
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 about ∠17° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2079 after 18 days on 11 September 2079 at 05:36.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
Moon is at perigee at 09:43. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 7 August 2079 at 14:51 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 4 September 2079 at 08:27 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 366 372 km (227 653 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 864 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 3 984 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
5 days after ascending node on 17 August 2079 at 13:43 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 30 August 2079 at 09:11 in ♎ Libra.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 22 August 2079 at 14:13 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.160°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.246° at the point of next southern standstill on 5 September 2079 at 06:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 3 days on 26 August 2079 at 17:02 in ♌ Leo 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.
