Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 27 August 2062 at 17:49.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1954" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2062 after 16 days on 18 September 2062 at 18:36.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 1 September 2062 at 10:35 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 September 2062 at 08:35 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 366 814 km (227 928 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 840 km (251 556 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 22 August 2062 at 04:45 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 September 2062 at 03:11 in ♍ Virgo.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 29 August 2062 at 10:48 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.645°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.670° in the next southern standstill on 11 September 2062 at 13:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day 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.
