Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 12 September 2072 at 09:07.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1883" and ∠1910".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2072 after 9 days on 27 September 2072 at 08:43.
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 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 899 of Meeus index or 1852 from Brown series.
Length of current 899 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 48 minutes. It is 1 hour and 38 minutes shorter than next lunation 900 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠5.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠21.6°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 12 September 2072 at 01:13 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 September 2072 at 03:10 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 380 563 km (236 471 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 005 km (252 280 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 11 September 2072 at 16:07 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 25 September 2072 at 05:16 in ♓ Pisces.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 7 September 2072 at 06:46 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.564°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.581° in the next southern standstill on 19 September 2072 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 9 days on 27 September 2072 at 08:43 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
