Gibbous ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 4 August 2096 at 05:05.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1881" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2096 after 28 days on 2 September 2096 at 15:36.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1194 of Meeus index or 2147 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 39 minutes. It is 2 hours and 31 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 3 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 4 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠47.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠76.1°.
7 days after point of apogee on 28 July 2096 at 13:17 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 12 August 2096 at 00:11 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 380 978 km (236 729 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 693 km (229 717 mi).
7 days after descending node on 29 July 2096 at 04:42 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 11 August 2096 at 17:28 in ♉ Taurus.
20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 1 August 2096 at 13:13 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.382°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.461° at the point of next northern standstill on 14 August 2096 at 16:29 in ♋ Cancer.
In 12 days on 18 August 2096 at 03:00 in ♌ Leo 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.
