Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 5 August 2100 at 23:02.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2100 after 9 days on 19 August 2100 at 21:29.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1244 of Meeus index or 2197 from Brown series.
Length of current 1244 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 48 minutes. It is 35 minutes longer than next lunation 1245 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠294.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠320.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 16:07, this is 12 days after last apogee on 29 July 2100 at 04:16 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 25 August 2100 at 23:00 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 368 679 km (229 087 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 171 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 677 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days after its descending node on 7 August 2100 at 17:51 in ♍ Virgo, 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 20 August 2100 at 18:39 in ♓ Pisces.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous North standstill on 2 August 2100 at 09:03 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.293°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.334° in the next southern standstill on 15 August 2100 at 09:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 9 days on 19 August 2100 at 21:29 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
