Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 29 July 2081 at 00:39.
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 ∠22° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1887" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2081 after 17 days on 19 August 2081 at 11:15.
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 1008 of Meeus index or 1961 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 40 minutes. It is 2 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠322.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠341.4°.
7 days after point of apogee on 24 July 2081 at 19:37 in ♓ Pisces. 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 6 August 2081 at 03:56 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 379 754 km (235 968 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 262 km (223 235 mi).
7 days after ascending node on 24 July 2081 at 18:52 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 7 August 2081 at 04:49 in ♍ Virgo.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 22:18 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠28.454°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-28.500° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 14 August 2081 at 14:13.
In 3 days on 5 August 2081 at 01:24 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.
