Gibbous ♓ Pisces
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 ∠18° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1903".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2028.
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 354 of Meeus index or 1307 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 40 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2028. It is 53 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 4 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠347.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠2.9°.
Moon is at apogee at 20:03. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 21 August 2028 at 04:10 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 18 September 2028 at 14:23 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 406 398 km (252 524 mi) away from Earth. It is 990 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 311 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after ascending node on 30 August 2028 at 20:39 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 14 September 2028 at 09:06 in ♋ Cancer.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 28 August 2028 at 06:28 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.819°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.693° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 September 2028 at 01:18 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
