Gibbous ♈ Aries
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 first ∠1° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1942" and ∠1910".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2005.
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 70 of Meeus index or 1023 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 42 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2005. It is 45 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 5 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠205.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠236.1°.
1 day after point of perigee on 16 September 2005 at 13:58 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 September 2005 at 15:20 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 369 043 km (229 313 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 307 km (251 846 mi).
12 days after descending node on 6 September 2005 at 10:52 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 19 September 2005 at 08:09 in ♈ Aries.
26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 12 September 2005 at 10:54 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.556°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.594° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 September 2005 at 06:42 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
