Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 30 August 2063 at 19:04.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2063 after 1 day on 7 September 2063 at 20:53.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 787 of Meeus index or 1740 from Brown series.
Length of current 787 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 4 minutes. It is 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter than next lunation 788 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 40 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 29 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠358.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠14.3°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 18:12, this is 13 days after last perigee on 24 August 2063 at 02:53 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 21 September 2063 at 13:02 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 406 190 km (252 395 mi) away from Earth. It is 782 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 519 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 22:09 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 20 September 2063 at 16:51 in ♌ Leo.
At 22:09 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
5 days after previous South standstill on 1 September 2063 at 05:30 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.251°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.212° in the next northern standstill on 15 September 2063 at 22:42 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 7 September 2063 at 20:53 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
