Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 26 September 2081 at 01:30.
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 ∠7° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1917".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2081 after 17 days on 17 October 2081 at 20:50.
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 1010 of Meeus index or 1963 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 22 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 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 4 hours and 22 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 47 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠357.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠12.5°.
13 days after point of apogee on 17 September 2081 at 08:20 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 1 October 2081 at 23:44 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 363 715 km (226 002 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 089 km (222 506 mi).
13 days after ascending node on 17 September 2081 at 06:18 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 1 October 2081 at 01:46 in ♍ Virgo.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 25 September 2081 at 14:31 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.512°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.464° at the point of next southern standstill on 8 October 2081 at 03:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 days on 2 October 2081 at 17:23 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.
