Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 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 first ∠2° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2094 after 15 days on 24 September 2094 at 08:33.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 16:37, this is 13 days after last perigee on 26 August 2094 at 01:39 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 23 September 2094 at 11:57 in ♓ Pisces.
This apogee Moon is 406 544 km (252 615 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 136 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 165 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days 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 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 18 September 2094 at 08:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 4 September 2094 at 07:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.478°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.617° in the next southern standstill on 18 September 2094 at 21:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day 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.
