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 ∠23° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2059 after 27 days on 23 August 2059 at 09:42.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 736 of Meeus index or 1689 from Brown series.
Length of current 736 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 737 length.
Length of current synodic month is 55 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 8 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠119.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠149.3°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 20:05, this is 12 days after last apogee on 14 July 2059 at 18:59 in ♍ Virgo. 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 11 August 2059 at 09:12 in ♍ Virgo.
This perigee Moon is 361 174 km (224 423 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 334 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 182 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
6 days after its descending node on 20 July 2059 at 05:06 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 August 2059 at 19:16 in ♉ Taurus.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 23 July 2059 at 10:35 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.645°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.681° in the next northern standstill on 5 August 2059 at 06:00 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 days on 8 August 2059 at 07:37 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
