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 first ∠2° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1913".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2037.
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 466 of Meeus index or 1419 from Brown series.
Length of current 466 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 20 minutes shorter than next lunation 467 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 35 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 34 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠9.6°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 03:44, this is 14 days after last perigee on 10 September 2037 at 02:13 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 8 October 2037 at 13:04 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 406 418 km (252 536 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 010 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 291 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
5 days after its descending node on 19 September 2037 at 02:02 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 October 2037 at 15:23 in ♋ Cancer.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 17 September 2037 at 19:36 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.547°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.695° in the next northern standstill on 2 October 2037 at 13:57 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
