Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 91% and growing larger. The 12 days young Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 22 July 2083 at 08:56.
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 leaving the last ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♑ Capricorn later.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2083 after 2 days on 29 July 2083 at 01:00.
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 1033 of Meeus index or 1986 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 51 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer 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 7 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 56 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠232°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠266.6°.
Moon is at perigee at 06:24. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 10 July 2083 at 10:51 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 7 August 2083 at 03:44 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 364 756 km (226 649 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 248 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 600 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
10 days after descending node on 16 July 2083 at 06:07 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 July 2083 at 04:55 in ♒ Aquarius.
24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 00:18 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-26.954°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠26.955° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 8 August 2083 at 19:08.
In 2 days on 29 July 2083 at 01:00 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.
