Moon* ♈ Aries
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 99% and growing larger. The 13 days young Moon is in ♈ Aries.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 10 October 2005 at 19:01.
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 ∠10° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1935" and ∠1925".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2005 after 1 day on 17 October 2005 at 12:14.
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 71 of Meeus index or 1024 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 57 minutes. It is 1 hour and 21 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 13 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠236.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠273.1°.
1 day after point of perigee on 14 October 2005 at 13:50 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 26 October 2005 at 09:34 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 370 519 km (230 230 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 493 km (251 340 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♈ Aries at 18:25 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 31 October 2005 at 00:32 in ♎ Libra.
At 18:25 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
6 days since the previous standstill on 9 October 2005 at 16:42 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.604°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.583° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 October 2005 at 15:02 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day on 17 October 2005 at 12:14 in ♈ Aries 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.
