Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1907".
The Full Moon this days is the Harvest of September 2098.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1220 of Meeus index or 2173 from Brown series.
Length of current 1220 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 24 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 1221 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
3 days after point of apogee on 7 September 2098 at 19:51 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 September 2098 at 09:26 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 400 458 km (248 833 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 024 km (224 330 mi).
13 days after its descending node on 29 August 2098 at 10:54 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 September 2098 at 21:33 in ♈ Aries.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 4 September 2098 at 08:51 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.462°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.525° in the next northern standstill on 18 September 2098 at 20:59 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
