Crescent ♎ Libra
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2054 after 14 days on 17 September 2054 at 01:41.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 01:18 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 676 of Meeus index or 1629 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 31 minutes is the length of new lunation 676. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes shorter than next lunation 677 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 56 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠23.7°. 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 1 September 2054 at 14:49 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 14 September 2054 at 13:46 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 364 317 km (226 376 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 922 km (252 228 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 1 September 2054 at 07:18 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 September 2054 at 21:07 in ♒ Aquarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 28 August 2054 at 21:36 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.122°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.139° in the next southern standstill on 10 September 2054 at 15:24 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
