Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 6 June 2096 at 02:58.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1815" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2096 after 27 days on 5 July 2096 at 17:02.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1192 of Meeus index or 2145 from Brown series.
Length of current 1192 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 36 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2096. It is 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 1193 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.7°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 3 June 2096 at 06:22 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 June 2096 at 18:27 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 394 941 km (245 405 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 025 km (224 331 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 4 June 2096 at 19:21 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 June 2096 at 09:30 in ♊ Gemini.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 00:25 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-26.345°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠26.330° in its northern standstill point on 21 June 2096 at 00:14 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 20 June 2096 at 09:12 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
