Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 28 September 2097 at 13:39.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1934" and ∠1918".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2097 after 18 days on 21 October 2097 at 01:23.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1208 of Meeus index or 2161 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 12 minutes. It is 3 hours and 11 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 1 hour and 33 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 37 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠47.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠76.4°.
3 days after point of perigee on 29 September 2097 at 06:20 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 12 October 2097 at 16:09 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 370 617 km (230 291 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 378 km (251 269 mi).
8 days after ascending node on 24 September 2097 at 02:09 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 7 October 2097 at 00:55 in ♏ Scorpio.
8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 28 September 2097 at 13:01 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.911°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.965° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 October 2097 at 03:02 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 2 days on 5 October 2097 at 11:45 in ♎ Libra 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.
