Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1902" and ∠1907".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2083 after 13 days on 25 September 2083 at 23:25.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 00:07 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1035 of Meeus index or 1988 from Brown series.
29 days, 10 hours and 16 minutes is the length of new lunation 1035. It is 24 minutes longer than next lunation 1036 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠299.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠325°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 3 September 2083 at 22:33 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 September 2083 at 04:05 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 376 913 km (234 203 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 109 km (228 732 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 8 September 2083 at 21:09 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 2083 at 18:27 in ♒ Aquarius.
17 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 5 September 2083 at 03:16 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.867°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.778° in the next southern standstill on 18 September 2083 at 12:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
