Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 17 September 2060 at 01:00.
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 ∠15° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1903" and ∠1910".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2060 after 21 days on 9 October 2060 at 18:41.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 750 of Meeus index or 1703 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 57 minutes. It is 2 hours and 35 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 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠119.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠149.6°.
6 days after point of perigee on 12 September 2060 at 02:40 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 27 September 2060 at 17:42 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 376 624 km (234 023 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 086 km (252 330 mi).
5 days after ascending node on 13 September 2060 at 04:20 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 26 September 2060 at 21:59 in ♎ Libra.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 17 September 2060 at 19:05 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.029°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.102° at the point of next southern standstill on 2 October 2060 at 10:31 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 6 days on 24 September 2060 at 15:53 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.
