Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1800" and ∠1888".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2008.
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 105 of Meeus index or 1058 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠20.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠39.2°.
4 days after point of apogee on 14 July 2008 at 04:13 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 29 July 2008 at 23:24 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 398 205 km (247 433 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 887 km (226 109 mi).
12 days after descending node on 5 July 2008 at 15:53 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 20 July 2008 at 03:27 in ♒ Aquarius.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
2 days since the previous standstill on 15 July 2008 at 15:03 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.566°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.598° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 July 2008 at 06:17 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
