Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 24 September 2060 at 15:53.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1915".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2060 after 13 days on 9 October 2060 at 18:41.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 751 of Meeus index or 1704 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 32 minutes. It is 1 hour and 18 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 48 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 15 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠149.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠174.6°.
14 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 27 September 2060 at 17:42 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 405 118 km (251 729 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 086 km (252 330 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♎ Libra at 21:59 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 10 October 2060 at 13:33 in ♈ Aries.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
8 days 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 5 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 13 days on 9 October 2060 at 18:41 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.
