Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 11 August 2081 at 16:32.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1808" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2081 after 2 days on 19 August 2081 at 11:15.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1009 of Meeus index or 1962 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 38 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2081. It is 44 minutes shorter 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 6 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠341.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠357.1°.
10 days after point of perigee on 6 August 2081 at 03:56 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 21 August 2081 at 05:57 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 396 544 km (246 401 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 148 km (252 369 mi).
9 days after descending node on 7 August 2081 at 04:49 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 21 August 2081 at 00:00 in ♓ Pisces.
22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 14 August 2081 at 14:13 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.500°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.537° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 August 2081 at 07:15 in ♊ Gemini.
In 2 days on 19 August 2081 at 11:15 in ♒ Aquarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
