Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 4 September 2083 at 06:24.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2083 after 20 days on 25 September 2083 at 23:25.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1034 of Meeus index or 1987 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 22 minutes. It is 1 hour and 6 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 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 47 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠266.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠299.9°.
1 day after point of apogee on 3 September 2083 at 22:33 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 16 September 2083 at 04:05 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 404 253 km (251 191 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 109 km (228 732 mi).
10 days after ascending node on 25 August 2083 at 13:34 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 September 2083 at 21:09 in ♌ Leo.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 03:16 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠26.867°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-26.778° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 18 September 2083 at 12:28.
In 6 days on 12 September 2083 at 00:07 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.
