Gibbous ♓ Pisces
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 100%. The 15 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 28 August 2007 at 10:35 UTC.
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 ∠6° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1924" and ∠1900".
The Full Moon this days is the Sturgeon of August 2007.
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 94 of Meeus index or 1047 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 42 minutes. It is 2 hours and 34 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 58 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 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 ∠97.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠131.4°.
9 days after point of apogee on 19 August 2007 at 03:28 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 31 August 2007 at 00:12 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 372 642 km (231 549 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 174 km (226 287 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 14:27 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 10 September 2007 at 14:49 in ♍ Virgo.
At 14:27 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
5 days since the previous standstill on 23 August 2007 at 08:02 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.377°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.380° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 September 2007 at 04:28 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
