Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 26 September 2087 at 18:47.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1917".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2087 after 11 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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1085 of Meeus index or 2038 from Brown series.
Length of current 1085 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 43 minutes. 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°).
15 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 October 2087 at 05:52 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 405 409 km (251 909 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 480 km (251 954 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 07:30 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 13 October 2087 at 21:45 in ♉ Taurus.
At 07:30 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
11 days after previous North standstill on 18 September 2087 at 21:42 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.239°. Next 2 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.
After 11 days on 12 October 2087 at 02:14 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
