Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 8 August 2095 at 09:19.
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 ∠8° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1861" and ∠1894".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2095 after 3 days on 15 August 2095 at 17:13.
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 1182 of Meeus index or 2135 from Brown series.
Length of current 1182 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 37 minutes. It is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than next lunation 1183 length.
Length of current synodic month is 53 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠110.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠142.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
6 days after point of apogee on 5 August 2095 at 19:19 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 August 2095 at 18:05 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 385 054 km (239 261 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 281 km (225 111 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 10 August 2095 at 21:46 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 August 2095 at 13:13 in ♊ Gemini.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 16:37 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-24.989°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠25.058° in its northern standstill point on 25 August 2095 at 09:24 in ♋ Cancer.
After 3 days on 15 August 2095 at 17:13 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
