Moon* ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 7 days on 15 September 2010 at 05:50.
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 ∠20° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1912".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2010 after 1 day on 23 September 2010 at 09:17.
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 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 132 of Meeus index or 1085 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 15 minutes. It is 1 hour and 52 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 4 hours and 29 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 40 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠4.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠20.4°.
1 day after point of apogee on 21 September 2010 at 08:03 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 October 2010 at 13:41 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 405 117 km (251 728 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 14 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 453 km (223 354 mi).
5 days after ascending node on 16 September 2010 at 13:56 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 1 October 2010 at 02:42 in ♋ Cancer.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 14 September 2010 at 23:47 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.710°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.555° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 September 2010 at 17:37 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day on 23 September 2010 at 09:17 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.
