Crescent ♍ Virgo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2019 after 14 days on 14 September 2019 at 04:33.
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 10:37 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 243 of Meeus index or 1196 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 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 55 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 14 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠356.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠11.4°.
Moon is at perigee at 15:57. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 17 August 2019 at 10:50 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 13 September 2019 at 13:32 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 357 177 km (221 939 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 331 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 179 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after ascending node on 27 August 2019 at 01:50 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 September 2019 at 17:35 in ♑ Capricorn.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 26 August 2019 at 17:53 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠22.473°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-22.539° at the point of next southern standstill on 8 September 2019 at 09:39 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
