Crescent ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 28 August 2087 at 05:08.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1785" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2087 after 12 days on 12 September 2087 at 16:43.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1084 of Meeus index or 2037 from Brown series.
Length of current 1084 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 39 minutes. It is 3 hours and 4 minutes shorter than next lunation 1085 length.
Length of current synodic month is 55 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 8 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠95.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠129.7°. 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°).
12 days after point of perigee on 19 August 2087 at 10:24 in ♉ Taurus. 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 3 September 2087 at 11:42 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 401 530 km (249 499 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 474 km (251 328 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 20 August 2087 at 13:00 in ♉ Taurus, 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 3 September 2087 at 03:54 in ♏ Scorpio.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous North standstill on 22 August 2087 at 16:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.473°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.343° in the next southern standstill on 5 September 2087 at 19:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 12 September 2087 at 16:43 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
