Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 18 September 2079 at 05:22.
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 ∠14° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1911".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2079 after 21 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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
1 day after point of perigee on 18 September 2079 at 08:26 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 2 October 2079 at 03:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 364 140 km (226 266 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 405 km (251 286 mi).
5 days after ascending node on 13 September 2079 at 17:20 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 26 September 2079 at 16:35 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 18 September 2079 at 20:00 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.319°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.371° at the point of next southern standstill on 2 October 2079 at 14:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 5 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.
