Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 28 September 2095 at 12:54.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1814" and ∠1919".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2095 after 8 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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1184 of Meeus index or 2137 from Brown series.
Length of current 1184 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 38 minutes. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 1185 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠168.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠192.1°. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 29 September 2095 at 20:21 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 October 2095 at 09:25 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 395 119 km (245 516 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 686 km (221 634 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 02:06 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 16 October 2095 at 18:35 in ♊ Gemini.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 21 September 2095 at 14:29 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.292°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.437° in the next southern standstill on 6 October 2095 at 09:24 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 8 days on 13 October 2095 at 09:30 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
