Crescent ♍ Virgo
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2085 after 14 days on 4 September 2085 at 00:41.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 09:10 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1059 of Meeus index or 2012 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 56 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2085. It is 3 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 3 hours and 12 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 51 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠180.2°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠204.1°.
Moon is at apogee at 08:35. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 6 August 2085 at 03:30 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next perigee on 3 September 2085 at 13:43 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 406 622 km (252 663 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2085. It is 1 214 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 87 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after descending node on 15 August 2085 at 13:51 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 30 August 2085 at 02:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 14 August 2085 at 14:33 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.995°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.865° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 August 2085 at 08:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
