Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2093 after 2 days on 5 September 2093 at 08:28.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1158 of Meeus index or 2111 from Brown series.
Length of current 1158 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 23 minutes. It is 1 hour and 6 minutes longer than next lunation 1159 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 39 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 24 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠215.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠247.8°. 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°).
14 days after point of apogee on 18 August 2093 at 17:01 in ♋ Cancer. 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 2093 at 09:46 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 363 459 km (225 843 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 104 km (225 001 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 01:36 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 15 September 2093 at 11:15 in ♋ Cancer.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 1 September 2093 at 03:48 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.745°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.823° in the next northern standstill on 14 September 2093 at 09:50 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 5 September 2093 at 08:28 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
