Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
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 ∠13° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1837" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2069.
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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 859 of Meeus index or 1812 from Brown series.
Length of current 859 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 59 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 860 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 45 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 24 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠40.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠66.4°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 28 June 2069 at 10:15 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 July 2069 at 15:08 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 390 227 km (242 476 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 840 km (229 187 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 29 June 2069 at 14:55 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 July 2069 at 03:06 in ♉ Taurus.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 2 July 2069 at 18:22 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.920°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.867° in the next northern standstill on 15 July 2069 at 22:08 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
