Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 1 September 2071 at 11:10.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2071 after 6 days on 9 September 2071 at 14:51.
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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 886 of Meeus index or 1839 from Brown series.
Length of current 886 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 5 minutes. It is 2 hours and 23 minutes shorter than next lunation 887 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 39 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 30 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠21.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠40.7°. 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°).
10 days after point of perigee on 24 August 2071 at 01:45 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 September 2071 at 06:50 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 403 300 km (250 599 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 348 km (251 872 mi).
7 days after its ascending node on 27 August 2071 at 02:29 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 September 2071 at 12:00 in ♓ Pisces.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 06:02 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.164°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.143° in its northern standstill point on 17 September 2071 at 12:25 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 9 September 2071 at 14:51 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
