Crescent ♌ Leo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 12 September 2028 at 00:46.
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 ∠23° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1926" and ∠1908".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2028 after 19 days on 3 October 2028 at 16:25.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 354 of Meeus index or 1307 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 40 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2028. It is 53 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 5 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠347.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠2.9°.
9 days after point of apogee on 4 September 2028 at 20:03 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 18 September 2028 at 14:23 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 372 151 km (231 244 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 048 km (221 859 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 09:06 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 26 September 2028 at 22:21 in ♑ Capricorn.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 12 September 2028 at 01:18 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.693°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.598° at the point of next southern standstill on 24 September 2028 at 13:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 4 days on 18 September 2028 at 18:24 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.
