Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days 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 ∠8° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1920" and ∠1899".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2083 after 1 day 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 12 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.
Length of current 1034 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 22 minutes. It is 1 hour and 6 minutes longer than next lunation 1035 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 47 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠266.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠299.9°. 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 22 August 2083 at 01:59 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 September 2083 at 22:33 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 373 334 km (231 979 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 236 km (251 181 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 13:34 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 8 September 2083 at 21:09 in ♌ Leo.
At 13:34 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
3 days after previous South standstill on 22 August 2083 at 06:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.925°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.867° in the next northern standstill on 5 September 2083 at 03:16 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 27 August 2083 at 11:00 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
