Crescent ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 29 July 2087 at 18:20.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2087 after 10 days on 14 August 2087 at 06:54.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1083 of Meeus index or 2036 from Brown series.
Length of current 1083 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 1084 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠62.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠95.4°. 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 25 July 2087 at 08:02 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 August 2087 at 16:39 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 400 338 km (248 759 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 051 km (251 066 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 24 July 2087 at 12:18 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 August 2087 at 01:46 in ♏ Scorpio.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous North standstill on 26 July 2087 at 09:39 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.684°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.587° in the next southern standstill on 9 August 2087 at 10:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 10 days on 14 August 2087 at 06:54 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
