Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 11 August 2094 at 04:36.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2094 after 13 days on 26 August 2094 at 00:51.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1170 of Meeus index or 2123 from Brown series.
Length of current 1170 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 55 minutes. It is 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 1171 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠167.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠190.4°. 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 14:04, this is 14 days after last perigee on 28 July 2094 at 16:14 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 26 August 2094 at 01:39 in ♓ Pisces.
This apogee Moon is 406 544 km (252 615 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2094. It is 1 136 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 165 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after its ascending node on 7 August 2094 at 16:45 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 August 2094 at 04:41 in ♑ Capricorn.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 8 August 2094 at 02:07 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.329°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.409° in the next southern standstill on 22 August 2094 at 13:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 26 August 2094 at 00:51 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
