Moon* ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 25 August 2001 at 19:55.
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 ∠24° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2001 after 1 day on 2 September 2001 at 21:43.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 20 of Meeus index or 973 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 32 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 57 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠358.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠13.2°.
Moon is at apogee at 23:26. It is 13 days after previous perigee on 19 August 2001 at 05:43 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 16 September 2001 at 15:50 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 406 332 km (252 483 mi) away from Earth. It is 924 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 377 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after descending node on 28 August 2001 at 09:09 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 11 September 2001 at 21:36 in ♊ Gemini.
16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 28 August 2001 at 23:14 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.546°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.677° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 September 2001 at 12:19 in ♋ Cancer.
In 1 day on 2 September 2001 at 21:43 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
