Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Synodic month length 29.33 days

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°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠356.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠356.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠11.4°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 13:32. It is 13 days after previous perigee on 30 August 2019 at 15:57 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next perigee on 28 September 2019 at 02:27 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 406 378 km

This apogee Moon is 406 378 km (252 512 mi) away from Earth. It is 970 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 331 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 8 September 2019 at 17:35 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 23 September 2019 at 06:30 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 8 September 2019 at 09:39 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.539°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.681° at the point of next northern standstill on 23 September 2019 at 01:54 in ♋ Cancer.

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
