Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
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 ∠11° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1892".
The Full Moon this days is the Sturgeon of August 2085.
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 1058 of Meeus index or 2011 from Brown series.
Length of current 1058 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 28 minutes. It is 28 minutes shorter than next lunation 1059 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 44 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 19 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠156.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠180.2°. 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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 24 July 2085 at 03:49 in ♌ Leo. 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 6 August 2085 at 03:30 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 363 954 km (226 151 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 268 km (221 996 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 2 August 2085 at 20:43 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 15 August 2085 at 13:51 in ♊ Gemini.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 1 August 2085 at 23:37 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.052°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.995° in the next northern standstill on 14 August 2085 at 14:33 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
