Crescent ♊ Gemini
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 13 July 2096 at 00:05.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2096 after 18 days on 4 August 2096 at 05:05.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1193 of Meeus index or 2146 from Brown series.
Length of current 1193 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 30 minutes shorter than next lunation 1194 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 35 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 34 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠26.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠47.7°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 15:28, this is 15 days after last apogee on 30 June 2096 at 19:58 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 28 July 2096 at 13:17 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 365 786 km (227 289 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 278 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 570 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 15 July 2096 at 15:38 in ♉ Taurus, 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 29 July 2096 at 04:42 in ♏ Scorpio.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 5 July 2096 at 06:20 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.318°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.342° in the next northern standstill on 18 July 2096 at 09:23 in ♋ Cancer.
After 3 days on 19 July 2096 at 17:20 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
