Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 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.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1868" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2062 after 25 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 19 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.
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°.
7 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 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 September 2062 at 10:35 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 383 664 km (238 398 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 122 km (225 012 mi).
2 days after ascending node on 22 August 2062 at 04:45 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 4 September 2062 at 03:11 in ♍ Virgo.
2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 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 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.645° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 August 2062 at 10:48 in ♊ Gemini.
In 9 days on 3 September 2062 at 08:42 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.
