Crescent ♎ Libra
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1924" and ∠1912".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2074 after 13 days on 5 October 2074 at 02:55.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 01:28 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 924 of Meeus index or 1877 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 43 minutes is the length of new lunation 924. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2074. It is 1 minute shorter than next lunation 925 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠314.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠335.8°. 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 apogee on 12 September 2074 at 02:10 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 September 2074 at 22:46 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 372 570 km (231 504 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 307 km (226 991 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 16 September 2074 at 20:14 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 September 2074 at 14:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 15 September 2074 at 04:44 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.157°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.263° in the next southern standstill on 28 September 2074 at 04:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
