Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 89% and growing larger. The 11 days young Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 10 August 2092 at 15:18.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1957" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2092 after 2 days on 17 August 2092 at 09:22.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1145 of Meeus index or 2098 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 20 minutes. It is 1 hour and 19 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 24 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 45 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠246.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠282.2°.
1 day after point of perigee on 13 August 2092 at 17:47 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 25 August 2092 at 18:58 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 366 353 km (227 641 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 285 km (251 211 mi).
10 days after ascending node on 3 August 2092 at 13:51 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 16 August 2092 at 14:00 in ♒ Aquarius.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 05:05 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-20.084°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠20.103° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 28 August 2092 at 04:01.
In 2 days on 17 August 2092 at 09:22 in ♒ Aquarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
