Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 25 September 2083 at 23:25.
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.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1916".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2083 after 26 days on 25 October 2083 at 14:36.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1035 of Meeus index or 1988 from Brown series.
Length of current 1035 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 16 minutes. It is 24 minutes longer than next lunation 1036 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠299.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠325°. 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 16 September 2083 at 04:05 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 October 2083 at 17:48 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 403 484 km (250 713 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 806 km (251 535 mi).
7 days after its ascending node on 21 September 2083 at 18:27 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 October 2083 at 02:37 in ♌ Leo.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 18 September 2083 at 12:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.778°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.664° in the next northern standstill on 2 October 2083 at 11:05 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 11 October 2083 at 10:23 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
