Moon* ♑ Capricorn
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 100%. The 14 days old Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 9 July 2017 at 04:07 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 ∠9° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2017.
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 216 of Meeus index or 1169 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 15 minutes. It is 1 hour and 30 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 5 hours and 29 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 40 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠11°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠27.9°.
2 days after point of apogee on 6 July 2017 at 04:27 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 July 2017 at 17:09 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 403 664 km (250 825 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 238 km (224 463 mi).
10 days after ascending node on 27 June 2017 at 16:26 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 July 2017 at 05:17 in ♒ Aquarius.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 10:49 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-19.440°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠19.413° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 21 July 2017 at 22:11.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
