Crescent ♎ Libra
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1959" and ∠1910".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2020 after 14 days on 1 October 2020 at 21:05.
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 11:00 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 256 of Meeus index or 1209 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 31 minutes. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 56 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠341.2°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠357°.
11 days after point of apogee on 6 September 2020 at 06:31 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 18 September 2020 at 13:44 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 365 848 km (227 327 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 081 km (223 123 mi).
6 days after ascending node on 10 September 2020 at 23:05 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 23 September 2020 at 12:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.
6 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 12 September 2020 at 05:25 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.353°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-24.458° at the point of next southern standstill on 24 September 2020 at 19:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
