Gibbous ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 3 August 2020 at 15:59.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2020 after 25 days on 2 September 2020 at 05:22.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 254 of Meeus index or 1207 from Brown series.
Length of current 254 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 9 minutes. It is 50 minutes longer than next lunation 255 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 35 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 34 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠296.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠322.3°. 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 25 July 2020 at 04:54 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 9 August 2020 at 13:51 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 403 753 km (250 880 mi) away from Earth. Moon is getting further over the next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will be 404 658 km (251 443 mi).
7 days after descending node on 31 July 2020 at 09:32 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 14 August 2020 at 19:22 in ♊ Gemini.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days after previous South standstill on 1 August 2020 at 08:47 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.087°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.152° in the next northern standstill on 15 August 2020 at 20:40 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 19 August 2020 at 02:41 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
