Gibbous ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 19 September 2072 at 04:58.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2072 after 1 day on 27 September 2072 at 08:43.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 03:10, this is 13 days after last perigee on 12 September 2072 at 01:13 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 10 October 2072 at 10:58 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 406 005 km (252 280 mi) away from Earth. It is 597 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 704 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♓ Pisces at 05:16 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 9 October 2072 at 01:44 in ♍ Virgo.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 19 September 2072 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.581°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.655° in the next northern standstill on 4 October 2072 at 13:44 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day 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.
