Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 27 September 2072 at 08:43.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1801" and ∠1916".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2072 after 27 days on 27 October 2072 at 01:21.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
4 days after point of apogee on 25 September 2072 at 03:10 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 10 October 2072 at 10:58 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 398 063 km (247 345 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 826 km (223 586 mi).
4 days after descending node on 25 September 2072 at 05:16 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 9 October 2072 at 01:44 in ♍ Virgo.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
9 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 5 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 12 days on 11 October 2072 at 17:55 in ♎ Libra 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.
