Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 10 July 2082 at 03:10.
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 first ∠2° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1804" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2082 after 26 days on 8 August 2082 at 14:33.
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 1020 of Meeus index or 1973 from Brown series.
Length of current 1020 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 38 minutes. It is 1 hour and 14 minutes longer than next lunation 1021 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 3 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠265.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠298.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
8 days after point of perigee on 4 July 2082 at 20:11 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 July 2082 at 16:24 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 397 351 km (246 902 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 169 km (251 139 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 02:53 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 27 July 2082 at 09:04 in ♌ Leo.
At 02:53 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
5 days after previous South standstill on 8 July 2082 at 10:27 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.861°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.898° in the next northern standstill on 22 July 2082 at 18:54 in ♊ Gemini.
After 12 days on 25 July 2082 at 15:54 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
