Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 3 September 2060 at 04:36.
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 ∠10° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1833" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2060 after 4 days on 10 September 2060 at 09:44.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 750 of Meeus index or 1703 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 57 minutes. It is 2 hours and 35 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 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠119.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠149.6°.
5 days after point of apogee on 31 August 2060 at 02:25 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 12 September 2060 at 02:40 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 391 063 km (242 995 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 154 km (224 411 mi).
5 days after descending node on 30 August 2060 at 17:20 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 13 September 2060 at 04:20 in ♈ Aries.
19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 02:26 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-27.952°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠28.029° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 17 September 2060 at 19:05.
In 4 days on 10 September 2060 at 09:44 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
