Gibbous ♓ Pisces
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 ∠2° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1791" and ∠1897".
The Full Moon this days is the Sturgeon of August 2062.
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 774 of Meeus index or 1727 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 2 minutes. It is 2 hours and 5 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 4 hours and 42 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 27 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠14°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠31.5°.
3 days after point of apogee on 16 August 2062 at 18:05 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 September 2062 at 10:35 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 400 206 km (248 676 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 122 km (225 012 mi).
12 days after descending node on 7 August 2062 at 17:38 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 22 August 2062 at 04:45 in ♓ Pisces.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 15 August 2062 at 06:10 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.592°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.645° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 August 2062 at 10:48 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
