Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 76% and growing larger. The 10 days young Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 10 September 2062 at 15:59.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2062 after 5 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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 775 of Meeus index or 1728 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 7 minutes. It is 2 hours and 36 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 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 32 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠31.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠54.6°.
Moon is at apogee at 08:35. It is 11 days after previous perigee on 1 September 2062 at 10:35 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 29 September 2062 at 03:19 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 404 840 km (251 556 mi) away from Earth. It is 568 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 869 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
9 days after descending node on 4 September 2062 at 03:11 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 18 September 2062 at 11:25 in ♓ Pisces.
22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 11 September 2062 at 13:11 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.670°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.655° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 September 2062 at 16:49 in ♊ Gemini.
In 5 days on 18 September 2062 at 18:36 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
