Moon ♈ Aries
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 100%. The 14 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 12 September 2087 at 16:43 UTC.
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1915" and ∠1907".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2087.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1084 of Meeus index or 2037 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 39 minutes. It is 3 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 55 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 8 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠95.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠129.7°.
9 days after point of apogee on 3 September 2087 at 11:42 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 15 September 2087 at 08:02 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 374 228 km (232 534 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 504 km (226 492 mi).
9 days after ascending node on 3 September 2087 at 03:54 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 16 September 2087 at 15:01 in ♉ Taurus.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 5 September 2087 at 19:29 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.343°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.239° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 September 2087 at 21:42 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
