Gibbous ♓ Pisces
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1902".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2001.
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 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°.
1 day after point of apogee on 1 September 2001 at 23:26 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 16 September 2001 at 15:50 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 404 569 km (251 388 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 128 km (222 530 mi).
6 days after descending node on 28 August 2001 at 09:09 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 11 September 2001 at 21:36 in ♊ Gemini.
18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
5 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 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.677° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 September 2001 at 12:19 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
