Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1939" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2082 after 13 days on 7 September 2082 at 04:30.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 01:18 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1022 of Meeus index or 1975 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 46 minutes is the length of new lunation 1022. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2082. It is 1 minute shorter than next lunation 1023 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠323.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠342.2°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 14 August 2082 at 10:53 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 26 August 2082 at 07:48 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 369 648 km (229 689 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 291 km (225 739 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 23 August 2082 at 18:04 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 September 2082 at 17:31 in ♒ Aquarius.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 19 August 2082 at 03:43 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.949°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.941° in the next southern standstill on 31 August 2082 at 22:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
