Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1937" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2062 after 15 days on 18 September 2062 at 18:36.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 08:42 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 775 of Meeus index or 1728 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 7 minutes is the length of new lunation 775. It is 2 hours and 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 776 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠31.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠54.6°. 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°).
2 days 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 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 September 2062 at 08:35 in ♑ Capricorn.

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
