Crescent ♎ Libra
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1910".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2028 after 15 days on 3 October 2028 at 16:25.
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 18:24 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 355 of Meeus index or 1308 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 48 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 4 hours and 11 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 58 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠2.9°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠18.5°.
Moon is at perigee at 14:23. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 4 September 2028 at 20:03 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 1 October 2028 at 21:38 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 357 048 km (221 859 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 460 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 308 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
4 days after descending node on 14 September 2028 at 09:06 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 September 2028 at 22:21 in ♑ Capricorn.
18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 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 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.598° at the point of next southern standstill on 24 September 2028 at 13:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
