Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 29 July 2085 at 20:47.
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 ∠12° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1901" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2085 after 4 days on 5 August 2085 at 17:29.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1058 of Meeus index or 2011 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 28 minutes. It is 28 minutes shorter 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 2 hours and 44 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 19 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠156.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠180.2°.
8 days after point of apogee on 24 July 2085 at 03:49 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 August 2085 at 03:30 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 377 082 km (234 308 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 268 km (221 996 mi).
13 days after descending node on 19 July 2085 at 10:21 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 2 August 2085 at 20:43 in ♐ Sagittarius.
26 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 23:37 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-24.052°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠23.995° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 14 August 2085 at 14:33.
In 4 days on 5 August 2085 at 17:29 in ♒ Aquarius 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.
