Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 22 July 2087 at 22:43.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1954" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2087 after 18 days on 14 August 2087 at 06:54.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1082 of Meeus index or 2035 from Brown series.
Length of current 1082 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes shorter than next lunation 1083 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠37.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠62.7°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 25 July 2087 at 08:02 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 August 2087 at 16:39 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 366 759 km (227 893 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 051 km (251 066 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 24 July 2087 at 12:18 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 August 2087 at 01:46 in ♏ Scorpio.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 09:39 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠20.684°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-20.587° in its southern standstill point on 9 August 2087 at 10:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 3 days on 29 July 2087 at 18:20 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
