Crescent ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 19 September 2085 at 01:07.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1795" and ∠1911".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2085 after 12 days on 3 October 2085 at 08:53.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1060 of Meeus index or 2013 from Brown series.
Length of current 1060 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 53 minutes. It is 32 minutes longer than next lunation 1061 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠204.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠234.1°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 16 September 2085 at 12:30 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 October 2085 at 22:42 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 399 309 km (248 119 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 069 km (223 737 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 11 September 2085 at 15:17 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 September 2085 at 04:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 10 September 2085 at 21:10 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.764°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.613° in the next southern standstill on 25 September 2085 at 14:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 3 October 2085 at 08:53 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
