Quarter ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 9 September 2071 at 14:51.
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 first ∠3° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1925" and ∠1908".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2071 after 23 days on 9 October 2071 at 05:23.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 886 of Meeus index or 1839 from Brown series.
Length of current 886 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 5 minutes. It is 2 hours and 23 minutes shorter than next lunation 887 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 39 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 30 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠21.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠40.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
10 days after point of apogee on 5 September 2071 at 06:50 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 September 2071 at 04:01 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 372 374 km (231 382 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 336 km (226 388 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 10 September 2071 at 12:00 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 September 2071 at 12:38 in ♍ Virgo.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 3 September 2071 at 06:02 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.164°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.143° in the next northern standstill on 17 September 2071 at 12:25 in ♋ Cancer.
After 8 days on 23 September 2071 at 17:21 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
