Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 13 September 2074 at 12:21.
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 ∠23° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1854" and ∠1910".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2074 after 16 days on 5 October 2074 at 02:55.
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 923 of Meeus index or 1876 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 29 minutes. It is 46 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 54 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠286°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠314.8°.
6 days after point of apogee on 12 September 2074 at 02:10 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 September 2074 at 22:46 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 386 700 km (240 284 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 307 km (226 991 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 16 September 2074 at 20:14 in ♋ Cancer. 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 29 September 2074 at 14:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 15 September 2074 at 04:44 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.157°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.263° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 September 2074 at 04:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 2 days on 21 September 2074 at 01:28 in ♍ Virgo 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.
