Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 15 July 2093 at 10:54.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2093 after 16 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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
12 days 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 July 2093 at 09:07 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 404 997 km (251 653 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 411 km (252 532 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 9 July 2093 at 06:40 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 July 2093 at 01:17 in ♋ Cancer.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 21:21 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠21.635°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-21.651° in its southern standstill point on 4 August 2093 at 19:32 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 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.
