Gibbous ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 19 September 2072 at 04:58.
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 ∠13° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1914".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2072 after 1 day on 27 September 2072 at 08:43.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°.
Moon is at apogee at 03:10. It is 13 days after previous perigee on 12 September 2072 at 01:13 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next perigee on 10 October 2072 at 10:58 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 406 005 km (252 280 mi) away from Earth. It is 597 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 704 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♓ Pisces at 05:16 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 9 October 2072 at 01:44 in ♍ Virgo.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 19 September 2072 at 20:57 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.581°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.655° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 October 2072 at 13:44 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day 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.
