Crescent ♎ Libra
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1917".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2073 after 14 days on 16 October 2073 at 01:54.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 10:21 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 912 of Meeus index or 1865 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 7 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 52 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 17 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠351.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠6.3°.
Moon is at perigee at 22:53. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 19 September 2073 at 03:23 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 16 October 2073 at 08:16 in ♈ Aries.
This perigee Moon is 357 437 km (222 101 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 071 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 919 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after ascending node on 28 September 2073 at 04:00 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 10 October 2073 at 18:58 in ♒ Aquarius.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 25 September 2073 at 01:43 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.692°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.779° at the point of next southern standstill on 7 October 2073 at 14:29 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
