Gibbous ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 20 July 2081 at 20:22.
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 ∠13° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2081 after 25 days on 19 August 2081 at 11:15.
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 1008 of Meeus index or 1961 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 40 minutes. It is 2 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠322.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠341.4°.
Moon is at apogee at 19:37. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 9 July 2081 at 01:02 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 6 August 2081 at 03:56 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 405 426 km (251 920 mi) away from Earth. It is 18 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 283 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♓ Pisces at 18:52 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 7 August 2081 at 04:49 in ♍ Virgo.
At 18:52 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
6 days since the previous standstill on 18 July 2081 at 08:57 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.389°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.454° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 August 2081 at 22:18 in ♊ Gemini.
In 11 days on 5 August 2081 at 01:24 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
