Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1892".
The Full Moon this days is the Sturgeon of August 2093.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1157 of Meeus index or 2110 from Brown series.
Length of current 1157 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 18 minutes. It is 55 minutes longer than next lunation 1158 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 34 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 29 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠190.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠215.5°. 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 perigee on this date at 03:50, this is 14 days after last apogee on 22 July 2093 at 09:07 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 18 August 2093 at 17:01 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 358 354 km (222 671 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 154 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 002 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 5 August 2093 at 17:27 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 August 2093 at 07:10 in ♋ Cancer.
14 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 4 August 2093 at 19:32 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.651°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.668° in the next northern standstill on 18 August 2093 at 03:18 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
