Gibbous ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 5 September 2074 at 13:13.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1829" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2074 after 28 days on 5 October 2074 at 02:55.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 923 of Meeus index or 1876 from Brown series.
Length of current 923 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 29 minutes. It is 46 minutes longer than next lunation 924 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 54 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠286°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠314.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
9 days after point of perigee on 28 August 2074 at 10:58 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 September 2074 at 02:10 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 391 985 km (243 568 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 457 km (251 318 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 2 September 2074 at 12:11 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 September 2074 at 20:14 in ♋ Cancer.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 31 August 2074 at 23:27 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.072°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.157° in the next northern standstill on 15 September 2074 at 04:44 in ♋ Cancer.
After 14 days on 21 September 2074 at 01:28 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
