Gibbous ♈ Aries
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 24 July 2097 at 09:54.
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 about ∠23° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1850" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2097 after 25 days on 22 August 2097 at 23:52.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1206 of Meeus index or 2159 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 2 minutes. It is 1 hour and 32 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 5 hours and 42 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 27 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠10°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠26.5°.
6 days after point of apogee on 21 July 2097 at 14:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 August 2097 at 01:35 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 387 412 km (240 727 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 915 km (224 262 mi).
11 days after descending node on 17 July 2097 at 10:55 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 31 July 2097 at 21:54 in ♉ Taurus.
23 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 22 July 2097 at 05:45 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.475°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.559° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 August 2097 at 00:09 in ♋ Cancer.
In 10 days on 7 August 2097 at 16:00 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.
