Gibbous ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 14 August 2087 at 06:54.
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 ∠8° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1905" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2087 after 28 days on 12 September 2087 at 16:43.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1083 of Meeus index or 2036 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 51 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 56 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 13 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠62.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠95.4°.
8 days after point of apogee on 6 August 2087 at 16:39 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 August 2087 at 10:24 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 376 233 km (233 780 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 169 km (229 391 mi).
8 days after ascending node on 7 August 2087 at 01:46 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 20 August 2087 at 13:00 in ♉ Taurus.
8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 9 August 2087 at 10:48 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.587°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.473° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 August 2087 at 16:14 in ♊ Gemini.
In 12 days on 28 August 2087 at 05:08 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
