Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 2 July 2074 at 02:22.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2074 after 2 days on 8 July 2074 at 17:05.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 921 of Meeus index or 1874 from Brown series.
Length of current 921 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes longer than next lunation 922 length.
Length of current synodic month is 44 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 19 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠218.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠250.9°. 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 14:26, this is 15 days after last apogee on 20 June 2074 at 21:28 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 18 July 2074 at 12:55 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 362 554 km (225 281 mi) away from Earth. It is 46 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 7 802 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after its ascending node on 26 June 2074 at 23:07 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 July 2074 at 19:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 25 June 2074 at 05:18 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.016°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.006° in the next southern standstill on 8 July 2074 at 08:12 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 days on 8 July 2074 at 17:05 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
