Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1835" and ∠1911".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2062.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 775 of Meeus index or 1728 from Brown series.
Length of current 775 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 7 minutes. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 13 September 2062 at 08:35 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 29 September 2062 at 03:19 in ♌ Leo.

1 day after its ascending node on 18 September 2062 at 11:25 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 October 2062 at 12:54 in ♍ Virgo.

7 days after previous South standstill on 11 September 2062 at 13:11 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.670°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.655° in the next northern standstill on 25 September 2062 at 16:49 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
