Quarter* ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 12 September 2087 at 16:43.
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 ∠14° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1910".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2087 after 23 days on 12 October 2087 at 02:14.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 15 September 2087 at 08:02 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 October 2087 at 05:52 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 364 646 km (226 581 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 480 km (251 954 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 16 September 2087 at 15:01 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 September 2087 at 07:30 in ♏ Scorpio.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 21:42 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠20.239°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-20.134° in its southern standstill point on 3 October 2087 at 03:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 8 days on 26 September 2087 at 18:47 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
