Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 30 August 2082 at 16:42.
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 ∠24° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1823" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2082 after 1 day on 7 September 2082 at 04:30.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1022 of Meeus index or 1975 from Brown series.
Length of current 1022 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 46 minutes. 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 perigee on 26 August 2082 at 07:48 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 September 2082 at 03:35 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 393 212 km (244 331 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 686 km (252 082 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 17:31 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 20 September 2082 at 04:04 in ♌ Leo.
At 17:31 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
4 days after previous South standstill on 31 August 2082 at 22:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.941°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.890° in the next northern standstill on 15 September 2082 at 12:03 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 7 September 2082 at 04:30 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
