Gibbous ♈ 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 21 September 2097 at 13:00 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 leaving the last ∠1° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♈ Aries later.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1851" and ∠1912".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2097.
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 1208 of Meeus index or 2161 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 12 minutes. It is 3 hours and 11 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 1 hour and 33 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 37 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠47.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠76.4°.
6 days after point of apogee on 14 September 2097 at 20:28 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 29 September 2097 at 06:20 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 387 209 km (240 601 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 864 km (229 823 mi).
11 days after descending node on 9 September 2097 at 17:26 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 September 2097 at 02:09 in ♉ Taurus.
24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 14 September 2097 at 18:59 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.835°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.911° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 September 2097 at 13:01 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
