Gibbous ♓ Pisces
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 83% and growing larger. The 11 days young Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 5 October 2019 at 16:47.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♓ Pisces later.
Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2019 after 4 days on 13 October 2019 at 21:08.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 244 of Meeus index or 1197 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 12 minutes. It is 2 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 37 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠11.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠28.3°.
11 days after point of perigee on 28 September 2019 at 02:27 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 10 October 2019 at 18:29 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 404 268 km (251 200 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 902 km (252 216 mi).
3 days after descending node on 5 October 2019 at 18:49 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 20 October 2019 at 07:28 in ♋ Cancer.
16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 5 October 2019 at 16:01 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.788°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.947° at the point of next northern standstill on 20 October 2019 at 08:07 in ♋ Cancer.
In 4 days on 13 October 2019 at 21:08 in ♈ Aries the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
