Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1933" and ∠1898".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2094 after 3 days on 26 August 2094 at 00:51.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 12 August 2094 at 14:04 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 26 August 2094 at 01:39 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 370 844 km (230 432 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 868 km (221 747 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 04:41 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 3 September 2094 at 19:00 in ♊ Gemini.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 13:55 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-23.409°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠23.478° in its northern standstill point on 4 September 2094 at 07:14 in ♋ Cancer.
After 3 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.
