Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 14 August 2072 at 01:21.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2072 after 13 days on 28 August 2072 at 15:59.
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 898 of Meeus index or 1851 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 46 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 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 58 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠350.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠5.6°.
1 day after point of perigee on 14 August 2072 at 14:59 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 29 August 2072 at 00:37 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 363 385 km (225 797 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 13 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 270 km (252 444 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 05:10 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 28 August 2072 at 23:05 in ♓ Pisces.
At 05:10 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
4 days since the previous standstill on 10 August 2072 at 21:36 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.592°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.564° at the point of next southern standstill on 23 August 2072 at 14:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 13 days on 28 August 2072 at 15:59 in ♓ Pisces 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.
