The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2044.

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 47 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 22 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠34°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠57.9°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 1 September 2044 at 20:26 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 September 2044 at 12:14 in ♌ Leo.
