Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 17 July 2082 at 22:58.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1818" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2082 after 17 days on 8 August 2082 at 14:33.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 17 July 2082 at 16:24 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 July 2082 at 23:55 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 394 356 km (245 041 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 196 km (228 786 mi).
9 days after its ascending node on 13 July 2082 at 02:53 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 July 2082 at 09:04 in ♌ Leo.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 18:54 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠27.898°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-27.934° in its southern standstill point on 4 August 2082 at 16:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 3 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.
