Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
The Full Moon today is the Buck Moon of July.
Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector and enters Capricorn later.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.11% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1889" and ∠1887".
There is high Full Moon ocean tide today. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 191 of Meeus index or 1144 from Brown series.
Length of current 191 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 19 minutes. It is 2 hours and 10 minutes shorter than next lunation 192.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 25 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 44 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠78.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly is ∠112.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months increases since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
7 days after point of apogee on 23 June 2015 at 17:01, lunar orbit gets closer while the Moon moves inward the Earth. It keeps this direction for next 4 days until it gets to the point of perigee on 5 July 2015 at 18:54.
Moon is 379 385 km (235 739 mi) away from Earth on this date. At previous apogee point before 7 days, distance is 404 134 km (251 117 mi). Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance reaches 367 095 km (228 102 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 24 June 2015 at 17:23, the Moon follows the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days untill it crosses the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 July 2015 at 00:07.
6 days after its beginning, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of current draconic month.
At 06:48 today Moon meets its South standstill point and reaches southern declination of ∠-18.445°. Next 12 days lunar orbit moves northward in opposite direction to face North declination of ∠18.417° in its northern standstill point on 14 July 2015 at 04:24.
The Moon is in Full Moon opposition with the Sun today and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
