Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 7 September 2025 at 18:09.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1906".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2025 after 26 days on 7 October 2025 at 03:47.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 317 of Meeus index or 1270 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 43 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 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠93°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠127.7°.
Moon is at perigee at 12:09. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 29 August 2025 at 15:34 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 26 September 2025 at 09:46 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 364 781 km (226 664 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 273 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 575 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days after ascending node on 7 September 2025 at 23:08 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 20 September 2025 at 23:13 in ♍ Virgo.
2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 1 September 2025 at 22:04 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.623°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.630° at the point of next northern standstill on 14 September 2025 at 21:23 in ♊ Gemini.
In 11 days on 21 September 2025 at 19:54 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
