Gibbous ♈ Aries
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 100%. The 15 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 10 September 2022 at 09:59 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 ∠19° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1918" and ∠1906".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2022.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 280 of Meeus index or 1233 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 37 minutes. It is 43 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 53 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 10 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠230.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠265.5°.
2 days after point of perigee on 7 September 2022 at 18:17 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 19 September 2022 at 14:44 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 373 691 km (232 201 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 556 km (251 379 mi).
8 days after descending node on 1 September 2022 at 21:12 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 14 September 2022 at 14:49 in ♉ Taurus.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 5 September 2022 at 13:56 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.219°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.316° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 September 2022 at 22:10 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
