Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 24 August 2086 at 17:25.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1940" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2086 after 23 days on 23 September 2086 at 01:15.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1071 of Meeus index or 2024 from Brown series.
Length of current 1071 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 39 minutes. It is 2 hours shorter than next lunation 1072 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 55 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 8 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠129.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠157.5°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 26 August 2086 at 02:04 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 September 2086 at 10:10 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 369 446 km (229 563 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 378 km (252 512 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 18 August 2086 at 19:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 31 August 2086 at 08:57 in ♊ Gemini.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 19 August 2086 at 11:08 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.198°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.092° in the next northern standstill on 1 September 2086 at 02:04 in ♊ Gemini.
After 8 days on 8 September 2086 at 01:17 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
