Crescent ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 19 July 2096 at 17:20.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1846" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2096 after 12 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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1194 of Meeus index or 2147 from Brown series.
Length of current 1194 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 39 minutes. It is 2 hours and 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 1195 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠47.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76.1°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 16 July 2096 at 15:28 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 July 2096 at 13:17 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 388 279 km (241 265 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 198 km (251 157 mi).
6 days 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 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 July 2096 at 04:42 in ♏ Scorpio.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 18 July 2096 at 09:23 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.342°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.382° in the next southern standstill on 1 August 2096 at 13:13 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 12 days on 4 August 2096 at 05:05 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
