Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 17 October 2079 at 11:22.
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 ∠6° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1912" and ∠1927".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2079 after 19 days on 9 November 2079 at 04:34.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 986 of Meeus index or 1939 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 14 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 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 30 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 33 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠80.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠116.3°.
6 days after point of perigee on 14 October 2079 at 02:01 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 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 29 October 2079 at 23:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 374 925 km (232 968 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 274 km (251 826 mi).
9 days after ascending node on 11 October 2079 at 01:09 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 October 2079 at 00:33 in ♎ Libra.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 16 October 2079 at 01:29 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.379°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.363° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 October 2079 at 22:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 4 days on 24 October 2079 at 18:19 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.
