Moon* ♓ Pisces
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 99% and growing larger. The 14 days young Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 25 August 2031 at 18:40.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♓ Pisces later.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1955" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2031 after 1 day on 1 September 2031 at 09:20.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 391 of Meeus index or 1344 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 15 minutes. It is 41 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 1 hour and 31 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 32 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠213.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠245.2°.
1 day after point of perigee on 30 August 2031 at 12:53 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 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 11 September 2031 at 11:54 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 366 594 km (227 791 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 006 km (251 659 mi).
6 days after ascending node on 25 August 2031 at 01:21 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 6 September 2031 at 16:34 in ♉ Taurus.
6 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 26 August 2031 at 23:55 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.731°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.623° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 September 2031 at 23:27 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day on 1 September 2031 at 09:20 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
