Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 6 August 2087 at 11:43.
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 ∠8° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1774" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2087 after 5 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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 6 August 2087 at 16:39 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 August 2087 at 10:24 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 403 969 km (251 015 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 169 km (229 391 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 7 August 2087 at 01:46 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 20 August 2087 at 13:00 in ♉ Taurus.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 26 July 2087 at 09:39 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.684°. Next day 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 5 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.
