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 ∠1° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1929" and ∠1907".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2049.
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 614 of Meeus index or 1567 from Brown series.
Length of current 614 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 46 minutes. It is 36 minutes longer than next lunation 615 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠210.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠241.4°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 10 September 2049 at 00:14 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 September 2049 at 00:05 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 371 622 km (230 915 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 133 km (251 738 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 4 September 2049 at 10:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 September 2049 at 00:51 in ♊ Gemini.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 5 September 2049 at 12:21 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.652°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.544° in the next northern standstill on 18 September 2049 at 07:37 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
