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 ∠20° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1906".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2041.
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 515 of Meeus index or 1468 from Brown series.
Length of current 515 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 25 minutes. It is 24 minutes shorter than next lunation 516 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠176.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠200.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 02:12, this is 14 days after last apogee on 27 August 2041 at 02:03 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 23 September 2041 at 04:59 in ♍ Virgo.
This perigee Moon is 357 004 km (221 832 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 504 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 352 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after its descending node on 1 September 2041 at 00:51 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 September 2041 at 16:25 in ♈ Aries.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 5 September 2041 at 12:54 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.620°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.700° in the next northern standstill on 18 September 2041 at 03:03 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
