Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 8 July 2093 at 17:14.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2093 after 28 days on 7 August 2093 at 00:23.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1156 of Meeus index or 2109 from Brown series.
Length of current 1156 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 31 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2093. It is 13 minutes longer than next lunation 1157 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 47 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 16 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠167.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠190.3°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 8 July 2093 at 18:17 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 July 2093 at 09:07 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 363 600 km (225 931 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 411 km (252 532 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 06:40 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 23 July 2093 at 01:17 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 8 July 2093 at 09:04 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.641°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.635° in the next northern standstill on 21 July 2093 at 21:21 in ♋ Cancer.
After 14 days on 23 July 2093 at 12:36 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
