Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1931" and ∠1895".
The Full Moon this days is the Sturgeon of August 2095.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
9 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 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 August 2095 at 18:05 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 371 132 km (230 611 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 281 km (225 111 mi).
4 days 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 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 August 2095 at 13:13 in ♊ Gemini.

2 days after previous South standstill on 12 August 2095 at 16:37 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.989°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.058° in the next northern standstill on 25 August 2095 at 09:24 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
