Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 25 August 2096 at 23:56.
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 ∠16° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1805" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2096 after 4 days on 2 September 2096 at 15:36.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1195 of Meeus index or 2148 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 10 minutes. It is 3 hours and 8 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 34 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 35 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠76.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠110.9°.
4 days after point of apogee on 25 August 2096 at 08:09 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 September 2096 at 10:00 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 397 114 km (246 755 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 386 km (228 283 mi).
4 days after descending node on 25 August 2096 at 06:52 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 7 September 2096 at 18:11 in ♉ Taurus.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 28 August 2096 at 21:09 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.564°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.671° at the point of next northern standstill on 10 September 2096 at 21:55 in ♋ Cancer.
In 4 days on 2 September 2096 at 15:36 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
