Moon* ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 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 first ∠1° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1922".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2072 after 16 days on 27 October 2072 at 01:21.
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 28 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°.
Moon is at perigee at 10:58. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 25 September 2072 at 03:10 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 22 October 2072 at 14:16 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 359 826 km (223 586 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 682 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 530 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after ascending node on 9 October 2072 at 01:44 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 22 October 2072 at 09:49 in ♓ Pisces.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
5 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 6 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 1 day 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.
