Crescent ♎ Libra
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1924" and ∠1912".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2074 after 13 days on 5 October 2074 at 02:55.
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 01:28 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 924 of Meeus index or 1877 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 43 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2074. It is 1 minute shorter 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 3 hours and 1 minute shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 8 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠314.8°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠335.8°.
9 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 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 September 2074 at 22:46 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 372 570 km (231 504 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 307 km (226 991 mi).
4 days after ascending node on 16 September 2074 at 20:14 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 29 September 2074 at 14:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 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 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.263° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 September 2074 at 04:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
