Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1933" and ∠1905".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2025.
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 317 of Meeus index or 1270 from Brown series.
Length of current 317 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 318 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠93°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠127.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
9 days after point of apogee on 29 August 2025 at 15:34 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 September 2025 at 12:09 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 370 761 km (230 380 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 781 km (226 664 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 7 September 2025 at 23:08 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 20 September 2025 at 23:13 in ♍ Virgo.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 1 September 2025 at 22:04 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.623°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.630° in the next northern standstill on 14 September 2025 at 21:23 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
