Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 19 July 2092 at 00:24.
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 ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1907" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2092 after 27 days on 17 August 2092 at 09:22.
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 1144 of Meeus index or 2097 from Brown series.
Length of current 1144 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes longer than next lunation 1145 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 3 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠215.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠246.7°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 17 July 2092 at 01:42 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 July 2092 at 00:58 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 375 854 km (233 545 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 974 km (251 639 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 04:19 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 3 August 2092 at 13:51 in ♌ Leo.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 17 July 2092 at 20:34 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.092°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.082° in the next northern standstill on 31 July 2092 at 20:14 in ♋ Cancer.
After 13 days on 3 August 2092 at 09:54 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
