Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1889".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2067.
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.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 835 of Meeus index or 1788 from Brown series.
Length of current 835 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes. It is 12 minutes shorter than next lunation 836 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠159.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠183°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 17:23, this is 13 days after last apogee on 13 July 2067 at 14:29 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 9 August 2067 at 18:29 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 357 147 km (221 921 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 361 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 209 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days after its ascending node on 23 July 2067 at 12:01 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 August 2067 at 05:26 in ♊ Gemini.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 23 July 2067 at 09:15 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.048°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.998° in the next northern standstill on 5 August 2067 at 03:19 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
