Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1789"

Harvest Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2062 after 8 days on 18 September 2062 at 18:36.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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.

Synodic month length 29.42 days

Length of current 775 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 7 minutes. It is 2 hours and 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 776 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠31.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠31.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠54.6°. 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°).

Moon before apogee

9 days after point of perigee on 1 September 2062 at 10:35 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 September 2062 at 08:35 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 400 691 km

Moon is 400 691 km (248 978 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 840 km (251 556 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after its descending node on 4 September 2062 at 03:11 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 September 2062 at 11:25 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 29 August 2062 at 10:48 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.645°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.670° in the next southern standstill on 11 September 2062 at 13:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 18 September 2062 at 18:36 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
