Gibbous ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 25 September 2028 at 13:10.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1917".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2028 after 2 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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is 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.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠2.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠18.5°.
Moon is at apogee at 21:38. It is 13 days after previous perigee on 18 September 2028 at 14:23 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 17 October 2028 at 00:41 in ♎ Libra.
This apogee Moon is 406 246 km (252 430 mi) away from Earth. It is 838 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 463 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after ascending node on 26 September 2028 at 22:21 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 11 October 2028 at 11:37 in ♋ Cancer.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 24 September 2028 at 13:21 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.598°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.447° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 October 2028 at 07:11 in ♊ Gemini.
In 2 days on 3 October 2028 at 16:25 in ♈ Aries the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
