Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 5 August 2083 at 12:38.
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 ∠7° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2083 after 19 days on 27 August 2083 at 11:00.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 03:44, this is 11 days after last perigee on 26 July 2083 at 06:24 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 22 August 2083 at 01:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 404 508 km (251 350 mi) away from Earth. It is 900 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 201 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
9 days after its ascending node on 29 July 2083 at 04:55 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 August 2083 at 13:29 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.
12 days after previous South standstill on 26 July 2083 at 00:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.954°. Next day 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.
After 6 days on 13 August 2083 at 12:45 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
