Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 27 July 2096 at 05:59.
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 ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1798" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2096 after 2 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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 28 July 2096 at 13:17 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 12 August 2096 at 00:11 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 398 618 km (247 690 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 693 km (229 717 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 29 July 2096 at 04:42 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 August 2096 at 17:28 in ♉ Taurus.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 13:13 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-26.382°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠26.461° in its northern standstill point on 14 August 2096 at 16:29 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 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.
