Moon* ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 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 ∠22° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1917".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2081 after 16 days on 17 October 2081 at 20:50.
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 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°.
Moon is at perigee at 23:44. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 17 September 2081 at 08:20 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next apogee on 14 October 2081 at 14:03 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 358 089 km (222 506 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 419 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 267 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 01:46 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 14 October 2081 at 11:52 in ♓ Pisces.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
5 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 6 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 1 day 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.
