Gibbous ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 30 August 2061 at 22:18.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1922" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2061 after 26 days on 29 September 2061 at 09:32.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 762 of Meeus index or 1715 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 58 minutes. It is 3 hours and 6 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 1 hour and 46 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 23 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠53.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠84.5°.
9 days after point of apogee on 23 August 2061 at 20:28 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 September 2061 at 10:37 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 372 923 km (231 724 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 805 km (229 786 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♈ Aries at 08:31 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 15 September 2061 at 08:16 in ♎ Libra.
At 08:31 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
7 days since the previous standstill on 25 August 2061 at 17:13 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.503°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.571° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 September 2061 at 02:43 in ♋ Cancer.
In 11 days on 13 September 2061 at 20:37 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
