Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 20 August 2062 at 03:55.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1825" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2062 after 27 days on 18 September 2062 at 18:36.
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 774 of Meeus index or 1727 from Brown series.
Length of current 774 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 2 minutes. It is 2 hours and 5 minutes shorter than next lunation 775 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 42 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 27 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠14°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠31.5°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 16 August 2062 at 18:05 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 September 2062 at 10:35 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 392 837 km (244 098 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 122 km (225 012 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♓ Pisces at 04:45 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 4 September 2062 at 03:11 in ♍ Virgo.
At 04:45 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
7 days after previous South standstill on 15 August 2062 at 06:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.592°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.645° in the next northern standstill on 29 August 2062 at 10:48 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 3 September 2062 at 08:42 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
