Moon ♍ Virgo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2068 after 15 days on 11 September 2068 at 17:19.
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 18:28 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 849 of Meeus index or 1802 from Brown series.
29 days, 16 hours and 20 minutes is the length of new lunation 849. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes shorter than next lunation 850 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠160.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠183.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
12 days after point of perigee on 14 August 2068 at 15:33 in ♓ Pisces. 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 29 August 2068 at 20:38 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 403 424 km (250 676 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 437 km (252 548 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 20 August 2068 at 00:01 in ♊ Gemini, 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 3 September 2068 at 12:48 in ♏ Scorpio.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 21 August 2068 at 14:51 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.140°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.990° in the next southern standstill on 5 September 2068 at 09:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
