Gibbous ♈ Aries
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1815" and ∠1906".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2071.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
5 days 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 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 September 2071 at 04:01 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 394 926 km (245 396 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 336 km (226 388 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♓ Pisces at 12:00 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 23 September 2071 at 12:38 in ♍ Virgo.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 3 September 2071 at 06:02 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.164°. Next 7 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.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
