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 ∠19° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2086 after 26 days on 24 August 2086 at 17:25.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1070 of Meeus index or 2023 from Brown series.
Length of current 1070 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 36 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes shorter than next lunation 1071 length.
Length of current synodic month is 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠95.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠129.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 01:59, this is 11 days after last apogee on 17 July 2086 at 04:25 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 13 August 2086 at 21:28 in ♎ Libra.
This perigee Moon is 364 494 km (226 486 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 986 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 862 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
6 days after its ascending node on 22 July 2086 at 14:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 August 2086 at 08:12 in ♊ Gemini.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 23 July 2086 at 01:34 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.388°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.322° in the next northern standstill on 4 August 2086 at 20:25 in ♊ Gemini.
After 10 days on 9 August 2086 at 10:38 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
