Gibbous ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 19 August 2081 at 11:15.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2081 after 28 days on 18 September 2081 at 03:45.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1009 of Meeus index or 1962 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 38 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2081. It is 44 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠341.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠357.1°.
14 days after point of perigee on 6 August 2081 at 03:56 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 21 August 2081 at 05:57 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 405 390 km (251 898 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 148 km (252 369 mi).
13 days after descending node on 7 August 2081 at 04:49 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 21 August 2081 at 00:00 in ♓ Pisces.
26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 14 August 2081 at 14:13 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.500°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.537° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 August 2081 at 07:15 in ♊ Gemini.
In 13 days on 3 September 2081 at 09:01 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
