Crescent ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 9 September 2096 at 10:17.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1894" and ∠1908".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2096 after 18 days on 2 October 2096 at 01:24.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1195 of Meeus index or 2148 from Brown series.
Length of current 1195 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 10 minutes. It is 3 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 1196 length.
Length of current synodic month is 34 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 35 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠110.9°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 6 September 2096 at 10:00 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 September 2096 at 03:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 378 374 km (235 111 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 898 km (251 592 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 7 September 2096 at 18:11 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 September 2096 at 09:31 in ♏ Scorpio.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 10 September 2096 at 21:55 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.671°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.795° in the next southern standstill on 25 September 2096 at 05:26 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 days on 16 September 2096 at 15:10 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
