Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 29 August 2095 at 21:05.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2095 after 13 days on 14 September 2095 at 01:11.
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 1183 of Meeus index or 2136 from Brown series.
Length of current 1183 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 1184 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠142.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠168.3°. 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 17 August 2095 at 18:05 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 September 2095 at 11:07 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 404 175 km (251 143 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 946 km (252 243 mi).
7 days after its ascending node on 23 August 2095 at 13:13 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 September 2095 at 00:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
6 days after previous North standstill on 25 August 2095 at 09:24 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.058°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.188° in the next southern standstill on 9 September 2095 at 01:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 14 September 2095 at 01:11 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
