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 ∠13° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1910".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2095 after 25 days on 13 October 2095 at 09:30.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1183 of Meeus index or 2136 from Brown series.
Length of current 1183 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 1184 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠142.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠168.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
2 days after point of perigee on 14 September 2095 at 22:53 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 September 2095 at 20:21 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 365 091 km (226 857 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 578 km (252 636 mi).
10 days after its descending node on 7 September 2095 at 00:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 September 2095 at 14:10 in ♊ Gemini.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 9 September 2095 at 01:37 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.188°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.292° in the next northern standstill on 21 September 2095 at 14:29 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 28 September 2095 at 12:54 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
