Crescent ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 5 October 2072 at 02:28.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2072 after 17 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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
14 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 10 October 2072 at 10:58 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 363 310 km (225 750 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 826 km (223 586 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 01:44 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 22 October 2072 at 09:49 in ♓ Pisces.
At 01:44 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
4 days since the previous standstill on 4 October 2072 at 13:44 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.655°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.728° at the point of next southern standstill on 17 October 2072 at 04:56 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 2 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.
