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 on this date is the Buck Moon of July.
Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and enters Aquarius later.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.01% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1889".
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. 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 167 of Meeus index or 1120 from Brown series.
Length of current 167 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 36 minutes. It is 51 minutes longer than next lunation 168.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 52 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 11 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠191.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly is ∠216.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months decreases since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0°or∠360°).
1 day after point of perigee on 21 July 2013 at 20:27, lunar orbit gets wider while the Moon moves outward the Earth. It keeps this direction for next 11 days until it gets to the point of apogee on 3 August 2013 at 08:53.
Moon is 364 599 km (226 551 mi) away from Earth on this date. At previous perigee point before 1 day, distance is 358 402 km (222 701 mi). Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance reaches 405 834 km (252 174 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 17 July 2013 at 14:58, the Moon follows the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days untill it crosses the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 30 July 2013 at 05:50.
4 days after its beginning, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of current draconic month.
2 days after previous South standstill on 20 July 2013 at 03:12, when Moon reaches southern declination of ∠-20.097°, lunar orbit moves northward for the next 10 days to face North declination of ∠20.025° in the next northern standstill on 2 August 2013 at 09:24.
The Moon is in Full Moon opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
