Gibbous ♈ Aries
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 100%. The 15 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 20 September 2051 at 10:11 UTC.
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♈ Aries later.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1911".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2051.
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 639 of Meeus index or 1592 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 14 minutes. It is 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 33 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠137°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠163.9°.
11 days after point of apogee on 9 September 2051 at 04:18 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 September 2051 at 12:20 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 365 661 km (227 211 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 920 km (223 023 mi).
11 days after ascending node on 8 September 2051 at 15:18 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 22 September 2051 at 03:59 in ♈ Aries.
11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 13 September 2051 at 15:30 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.758°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.704° at the point of next northern standstill on 26 September 2051 at 07:36 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
