Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 2 October 2081 at 17:23.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1941" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2081 after 13 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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1011 of Meeus index or 1964 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 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 3 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 6 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠12.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠29.7°.
2 days after point of perigee on 1 October 2081 at 23:44 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 14 October 2081 at 14:03 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 369 289 km (229 466 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 721 km (252 103 mi).
3 days after descending node on 1 October 2081 at 01:46 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 14 October 2081 at 11:52 in ♓ Pisces.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
8 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 3 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 13 days on 17 October 2081 at 20:50 in ♈ Aries the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
