Gibbous ♓ Pisces
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1824" and ∠1897".
The Full Moon this days is the Sturgeon of August 2100.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 10 August 2100 at 16:07 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 August 2100 at 23:00 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 392 997 km (244 197 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 637 km (251 430 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♓ Pisces at 18:39 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 4 September 2100 at 02:42 in ♍ Virgo.
At 18:39 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
5 days after previous South standstill on 15 August 2100 at 09:13 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.334°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.356° in the next northern standstill on 29 August 2100 at 17:37 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
