Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 17 September 2094 at 17:28.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1913".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2094 after 1 day 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 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1171 of Meeus index or 2124 from Brown series.
Length of current 1171 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 13 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2094. It is 15 minutes longer than next lunation 1172 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 34 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠190.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠216.5°. 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 perigee on this date at 11:57, this is 14 days after last apogee on 8 September 2094 at 16:37 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 5 October 2094 at 23:56 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 358 122 km (222 527 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 386 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 234 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
5 days after its descending node on 18 September 2094 at 08:20 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 September 2094 at 20:19 in ♊ Gemini.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 18 September 2094 at 21:55 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.617°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.728° in the next northern standstill on 1 October 2094 at 13:29 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 24 September 2094 at 08:33 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
