Moon* ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 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 ∠7° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1910".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2028 after 16 days on 3 October 2028 at 16:25.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 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°.
12 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 18 September 2028 at 14:23 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 363 836 km (226 077 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 048 km (221 859 mi).
3 days after descending node on 14 September 2028 at 09:06 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 September 2028 at 22:21 in ♑ Capricorn.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
5 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 7 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 1 day 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.
