Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 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 about ∠9° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2071 after 3 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 12 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 5 September 2071 at 06:50 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 September 2071 at 04:01 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 405 144 km (251 745 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 336 km (226 388 mi).
10 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 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 September 2071 at 12:00 in ♓ Pisces.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 3 September 2071 at 06:02 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.164°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.143° in the next northern standstill on 17 September 2071 at 12:25 in ♋ Cancer.
After 3 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.
