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.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1924" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2025 after 27 days on 7 September 2025 at 18:09.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 316 of Meeus index or 1269 from Brown series.
Length of current 316 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 55 minutes. It is 2 hours and 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 317 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠60.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠93°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 1 August 2025 at 20:37 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 August 2025 at 18:01 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 372 614 km (231 532 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 287 km (229 464 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♓ Pisces at 14:53 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 24 August 2025 at 15:41 in ♍ Virgo.
At 14:53 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
5 days after previous South standstill on 5 August 2025 at 13:37 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.534°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.585° in the next northern standstill on 18 August 2025 at 15:59 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 23 August 2025 at 06:06 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
