Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 2 September 2096 at 15:36.
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 ∠6° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2096 after 25 days on 2 October 2096 at 01:24.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1195 of Meeus index or 2148 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 10 minutes. It is 3 hours and 8 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 34 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 35 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠76.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠110.9°.
Moon is at perigee at 10:00. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 25 August 2096 at 08:09 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 22 September 2096 at 03:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 367 386 km (228 283 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 878 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 970 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 days after descending node on 25 August 2096 at 06:52 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 7 September 2096 at 18:11 in ♉ Taurus.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
8 days since the previous standstill on 28 August 2096 at 21:09 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.564°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.671° at the point of next northern standstill on 10 September 2096 at 21:55 in ♋ Cancer.
In 10 days on 16 September 2096 at 15:10 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
