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 ∠9° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1792" and ∠1923".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2081 after 6 days on 17 October 2081 at 20:50.
The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1011 of Meeus index or 1964 from Brown series.
Length of current 1011 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 1012 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠12.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠29.7°. 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 1 October 2081 at 23:44 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 14 October 2081 at 14:03 in ♓ Pisces.

10 days after its descending node on 1 October 2081 at 01:46 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 October 2081 at 11:52 in ♓ Pisces.

3 days after previous South standstill on 8 October 2081 at 03:37 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.464°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.369° in the next northern standstill on 22 October 2081 at 20:04 in ♊ Gemini.
After 6 days on 17 October 2081 at 20:50 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
