Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1856" and ∠1890".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2091.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1132 of Meeus index or 2085 from Brown series.
Length of current 1132 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 6 minutes. It is 53 minutes longer than next lunation 1133 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 38 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 31 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠280.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠310.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
7 days after point of perigee on 23 July 2091 at 04:02 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 August 2091 at 07:42 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 386 236 km (239 996 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 324 km (251 235 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 19 July 2091 at 10:20 in ♍ Virgo, 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 1 August 2091 at 10:40 in ♓ Pisces.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 28 July 2091 at 05:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.921°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.890° in the next northern standstill on 11 August 2091 at 15:21 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
