Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 27 August 2083 at 11:00.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1850" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2083 after 28 days on 25 September 2083 at 23:25.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
6 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 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 September 2083 at 22:33 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 387 398 km (240 718 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 236 km (251 181 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 25 August 2083 at 13:34 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 September 2083 at 21:09 in ♌ Leo.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 22 August 2083 at 06:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.925°. Next 7 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 14 days on 12 September 2083 at 00:07 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
