Moon* ♓ 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 ∠8° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1905".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2014.
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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 181 of Meeus index or 1134 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2014. It is 18 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 3 hours and 17 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 46 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠192.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠218.3°.
Moon is at perigee at 03:29. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 24 August 2014 at 06:09 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 20 September 2014 at 14:22 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 358 388 km (222 692 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 120 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 968 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after ascending node on 29 August 2014 at 13:14 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 11 September 2014 at 07:32 in ♈ Aries.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 3 September 2014 at 13:10 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.641°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.579° at the point of next northern standstill on 16 September 2014 at 05:15 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
