The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2077.

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 51 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 12 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠146°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠171°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 21 August 2077 at 22:11 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 September 2077 at 12:31 in ♓ Pisces.

6 days after its descending node on 26 August 2077 at 16:24 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 September 2077 at 05:17 in ♊ Gemini.

4 days after previous South standstill on 29 August 2077 at 11:23 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.035°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.130° in the next northern standstill on 11 September 2077 at 00:42 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
