Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1892".
The Full Moon this days is the Sturgeon of August 2085.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°.
12 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 August 2085 at 03:30 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 363 954 km (226 151 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 268 km (221 996 mi).
2 days after ascending node on 2 August 2085 at 20:43 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 August 2085 at 13:51 in ♊ Gemini.
2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 1 August 2085 at 23:37 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.052°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.995° at the point of next northern standstill on 14 August 2085 at 14:33 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
