Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1908" and ∠1890".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2083.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1033 of Meeus index or 1986 from Brown series.
Length of current 1033 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 51 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer than next lunation 1034 length.
Length of current synodic month is 7 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 56 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠232°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠266.6°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 26 July 2083 at 06:24 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 August 2083 at 03:44 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 375 707 km (233 454 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 508 km (251 350 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 04:55 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 12 August 2083 at 13:29 in ♌ Leo.
At 04:55 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
3 days after previous South standstill on 26 July 2083 at 00:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.954°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.955° in the next northern standstill on 8 August 2083 at 19:08 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
