Moon* ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 13 July 2096 at 00:05.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1938" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2096 after 16 days on 4 August 2096 at 05:05.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1193 of Meeus index or 2146 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 30 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 35 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 34 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠26.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠47.7°.
1 day after point of perigee on 16 July 2096 at 15:28 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 July 2096 at 13:17 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 369 941 km (229 871 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 198 km (251 157 mi).
2 days after ascending node on 15 July 2096 at 15:38 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 29 July 2096 at 04:42 in ♏ Scorpio.
2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 09:23 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠26.342°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-26.382° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 1 August 2096 at 13:13.
In 1 day on 19 July 2096 at 17:20 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
