Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 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 ∠19° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1897" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2097 after 23 days on 22 August 2097 at 23:52.
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 20 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.
Length of current 1206 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 2 minutes. It is 1 hour and 32 minutes shorter than next lunation 1207 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 42 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 27 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.5°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 21 July 2097 at 14:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 August 2097 at 01:35 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 377 945 km (234 844 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 915 km (224 262 mi).
13 days after its descending node on 17 July 2097 at 10:55 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 31 July 2097 at 21:54 in ♉ Taurus.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 22 July 2097 at 05:45 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.475°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.559° in the next northern standstill on 5 August 2097 at 00:09 in ♋ Cancer.
After 8 days on 7 August 2097 at 16:00 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
