Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 20 August 2083 at 13:46.
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 ∠25° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2083 after 4 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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1034 of Meeus index or 1987 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 22 minutes. It is 1 hour and 6 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 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 47 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠266.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠299.9°.
Moon is at perigee at 01:59. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 7 August 2083 at 03:44 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 3 September 2083 at 22:33 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 369 256 km (229 445 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 748 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 100 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after descending node on 12 August 2083 at 13:29 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 25 August 2083 at 13:34 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 06:59 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-26.925°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠26.867° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 5 September 2083 at 03:16.
In 4 days on 27 August 2083 at 11:00 in ♓ Pisces 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.
