Crescent ♎ Libra
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1792" and ∠1915".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2087 after 14 days on 12 October 2087 at 02:14.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 18:47 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1085 of Meeus index or 2038 from Brown series.
29 days, 16 hours and 43 minutes is the length of new lunation 1085. It is 2 hours and 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 1086 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 59 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 4 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠129.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠158.4°. 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 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 October 2087 at 05:52 in ♏ Scorpio.

10 days 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 September 2087 at 07:30 in ♏ Scorpio.

8 days after previous North standstill on 18 September 2087 at 21:42 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.239°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.134° in the next southern standstill on 3 October 2087 at 03:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
