Moon* ♍ Virgo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1774" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2015 after 15 days on 28 September 2015 at 02:50.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 14:53 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 193 of Meeus index or 1146 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 48 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 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 3 hours and 4 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 59 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠144.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠169.3°.
12 days after point of perigee on 30 August 2015 at 15:24 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 14 September 2015 at 11:28 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 404 017 km (251 045 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 466 km (252 566 mi).
12 days after descending node on 31 August 2015 at 10:16 in ♈ Aries. 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 14 September 2015 at 04:38 in ♎ Libra.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 6 September 2015 at 17:06 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.163°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.134° at the point of next southern standstill on 21 September 2015 at 12:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
