Quarter* ♊ Gemini
Waning Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 60% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 12 September 2087 at 16:43.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1910".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2087 after 23 days on 12 October 2087 at 02:14.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1084 of Meeus index or 2037 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 39 minutes. It is 3 hours and 4 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 55 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 8 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠95.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠129.7°.
3 days after point of perigee on 15 September 2087 at 08:02 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 1 October 2087 at 05:52 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 364 646 km (226 581 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 480 km (251 954 mi).
1 day after descending node on 16 September 2087 at 15:01 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 30 September 2087 at 07:30 in ♏ Scorpio.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 21:42 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠20.239°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-20.134° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 3 October 2087 at 03:05.
In 8 days on 26 September 2087 at 18:47 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.
