Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 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 ∠20° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1905".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2096 after 24 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 20 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.
Length of current 1195 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 10 minutes. It is 3 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 1196 length.
Length of current synodic month is 34 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 35 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠110.9°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 6 September 2096 at 10:00 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 September 2096 at 03:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 363 447 km (225 835 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 898 km (251 592 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 18:11 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 21 September 2096 at 09:31 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 18:11 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
9 days after previous South standstill on 28 August 2096 at 21:09 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.564°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.671° in the next northern standstill on 10 September 2096 at 21:55 in ♋ Cancer.
After 9 days on 16 September 2096 at 15:10 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
