Quarter* ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 12 September 2072 at 09:07.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1860" and ∠1910".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2072 after 8 days on 27 September 2072 at 08:43.
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 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 899 of Meeus index or 1852 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 48 minutes. It is 1 hour and 38 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 3 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠5.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠21.6°.
6 days after point of perigee on 12 September 2072 at 01:13 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 25 September 2072 at 03:10 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 385 462 km (239 515 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 005 km (252 280 mi).
6 days after ascending node on 11 September 2072 at 16:07 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 25 September 2072 at 05:16 in ♓ Pisces.
6 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 7 September 2072 at 06:46 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.564°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-18.581° at the point of next southern standstill on 19 September 2072 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 8 days on 27 September 2072 at 08:43 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.
