Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1908".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2054 after 1 day on 17 September 2054 at 01:41.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 676 of Meeus index or 1629 from Brown series.
Length of current 676 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 31 minutes. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes shorter than next lunation 677 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 56 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠23.7°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 14 September 2054 at 13:46 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 September 2054 at 23:51 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 405 326 km (251 858 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 310 km (223 886 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 14 September 2054 at 21:07 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 September 2054 at 16:44 in ♌ Leo.

4 days after previous South standstill on 10 September 2054 at 15:24 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.139°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.216° in the next northern standstill on 25 September 2054 at 05:02 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 17 September 2054 at 01:41 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
