Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 18 July 2086 at 21:45.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1851" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2086 after 2 days on 26 July 2086 at 09:24.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1070 of Meeus index or 2023 from Brown series.
Length of current 1070 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 36 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes shorter than next lunation 1071 length.
Length of current synodic month is 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠95.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠129.5°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 17 July 2086 at 04:25 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 July 2086 at 01:59 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 387 186 km (240 586 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 494 km (226 486 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 22 July 2086 at 14:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 August 2086 at 08:12 in ♊ Gemini.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 01:34 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-22.388°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠22.322° in its northern standstill point on 4 August 2086 at 20:25 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 days on 26 July 2086 at 09:24 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
