Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 11 September 2079 at 05:36.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1910" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2079 after 27 days on 10 October 2079 at 17:23.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 985 of Meeus index or 1938 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 3 minutes. It is 3 hours and 11 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 1 hour and 41 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 28 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠50.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠80.4°.
9 days after point of apogee on 4 September 2079 at 08:27 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 18 September 2079 at 08:26 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 375 230 km (233 157 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 896 km (229 843 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♈ Aries at 17:20 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 26 September 2079 at 16:35 in ♎ Libra.
At 17:20 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
8 days since the previous standstill on 5 September 2079 at 06:20 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.246°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.319° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 September 2079 at 20:00 in ♊ Gemini.
In 11 days on 25 September 2079 at 04:06 in ♎ Libra 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.
