Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 7 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 ∠19° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2093 after 15 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 28 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 09:07, this is 13 days after last perigee on 8 July 2093 at 18:17 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 6 August 2093 at 03:50 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 406 411 km (252 532 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2093. It is 1 003 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 298 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
13 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.
26 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 North standstill on 21 July 2093 at 21:21 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.635°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.651° in the next southern standstill on 4 August 2093 at 19:32 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day 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.
