Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 18% and growing larger. The 4 days young Moon is in ♏ Scorpio.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 19 September 2085 at 01:07.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1852" and ∠1913".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2085 after 9 days on 3 October 2085 at 08:53.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1060 of Meeus index or 2013 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 53 minutes. It is 32 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 3 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 54 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠204.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠234.1°.
6 days after point of apogee on 16 September 2085 at 12:30 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 October 2085 at 22:42 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 387 041 km (240 496 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 069 km (223 737 mi).
11 days after descending node on 11 September 2085 at 15:17 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 September 2085 at 04:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.
24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 10 September 2085 at 21:10 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.764°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.613° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 September 2085 at 14:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 9 days on 3 October 2085 at 08:53 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.
