Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 6 October 2095 at 15:52.
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 ∠8° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1904" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2095 after 4 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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
8 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 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 October 2095 at 09:25 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 376 469 km (233 927 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 686 km (221 634 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 4 October 2095 at 02:06 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 October 2095 at 18:35 in ♊ Gemini.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 6 October 2095 at 09:24 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.437°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.525° in the next northern standstill on 18 October 2095 at 21:15 in ♋ Cancer.
After 4 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.
