The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2080.

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 25 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 44 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠29.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠51.5°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 23 September 2080 at 20:47 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 October 2080 at 17:45 in ♌ Leo.

8 days after previous South standstill on 21 September 2080 at 02:33 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.695°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.682° in the next northern standstill on 5 October 2080 at 09:53 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
