Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1817" and ∠1911".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2093 after 14 days on 4 October 2093 at 18:18.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 18:16 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1159 of Meeus index or 2112 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 17 minutes is the length of new lunation 1159. It is 53 minutes longer than next lunation 1160 length.
Length of current synodic month is 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 30 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠247.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠284.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
5 days after point of apogee on 15 September 2093 at 07:53 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 October 2093 at 02:43 in ♒ Aquarius.

6 days after previous North standstill on 14 September 2093 at 09:50 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.823°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.954° in the next southern standstill on 28 September 2093 at 09:48 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
