Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 13 August 2093 at 23:23.
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 ∠11° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1793" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2093 after 20 days on 5 September 2093 at 08:28.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 6 August 2093 at 03:50 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 August 2093 at 17:01 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 399 672 km (248 345 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 778 km (252 139 mi).
9 days 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 August 2093 at 07:10 in ♋ Cancer.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 4 August 2093 at 19:32 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.651°. Next 2 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.
After 6 days on 22 August 2093 at 03:53 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
