Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2064 after 13 days on 25 September 2064 at 13:38.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 800 of Meeus index or 1753 from Brown series.
Length of current 800 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 23 minutes. It is 48 minutes shorter than next lunation 801 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 21 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 48 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠344°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠359.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 00:51, this is 12 days after last apogee on 30 August 2064 at 14:46 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 27 September 2064 at 00:14 in ♈ Aries.
This perigee Moon is 358 598 km (222 822 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 910 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 758 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after its descending node on 8 September 2064 at 19:25 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 September 2064 at 13:35 in ♒ Aquarius.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous North standstill on 4 September 2064 at 22:06 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.341°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.279° in the next southern standstill on 17 September 2064 at 12:22 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 25 September 2064 at 13:38 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
