Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1918" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2074.
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 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 6 July 2074 at 14:26 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 July 2074 at 12:55 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 373 716 km (232 216 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 870 km (251 575 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 19:46 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 24 July 2074 at 05:30 in ♌ Leo.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 8 July 2074 at 08:12 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.006°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.003° in the next northern standstill on 22 July 2074 at 12:38 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
