Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 5 August 2062 at 00:40.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1944" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2062 after 13 days on 20 August 2062 at 03:55.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 774 of Meeus index or 1727 from Brown series.
Length of current 774 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 2 minutes. It is 2 hours and 5 minutes shorter than next lunation 775 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 42 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 27 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠14°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠31.5°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 4 August 2062 at 04:41 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 August 2062 at 18:05 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 368 695 km (229 096 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 741 km (252 116 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 26 July 2062 at 00:55 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 August 2062 at 17:38 in ♍ Virgo.

4 days after previous North standstill on 2 August 2062 at 02:58 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.542°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.592° in the next southern standstill on 15 August 2062 at 06:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 20 August 2062 at 03:55 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
