Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 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 ∠15° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1815" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2087 after 2 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 12 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°).
4 days 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 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 August 2087 at 10:24 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 394 895 km (245 376 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 169 km (229 391 mi).
4 days 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 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 20 August 2087 at 13:00 in ♉ Taurus.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 9 August 2087 at 10:48 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.587°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.473° in the next northern standstill on 22 August 2087 at 16:14 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 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.
