Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 1 September 2094 at 18:09.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1805" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2094 after 19 days on 24 September 2094 at 08:33.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1170 of Meeus index or 2123 from Brown series.
Length of current 1170 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 55 minutes. It is 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 1171 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠167.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠190.4°. 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 26 August 2094 at 01:39 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 September 2094 at 16:37 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 397 050 km (246 715 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 544 km (252 615 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 3 September 2094 at 19:00 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 September 2094 at 08:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 07:14 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠23.478°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-23.617° in its southern standstill point on 18 September 2094 at 21:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 5 days on 9 September 2094 at 20:31 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
