Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days 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 ∠10° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2093 after 15 days on 5 September 2093 at 08:28.
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 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 18 August 2093 at 17:01 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 September 2093 at 09:46 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 404 471 km (251 327 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 104 km (225 001 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 19 August 2093 at 07:10 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 September 2093 at 01:36 in ♑ Capricorn.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 18 August 2093 at 03:18 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.668°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.745° in the next southern standstill on 1 September 2093 at 03:48 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day 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.
