Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 27 June 2096 at 13:31.
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 ∠6° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2096 after 3 days on 5 July 2096 at 17:02.
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 1193 of Meeus index or 2146 from Brown series.
Length of current 1193 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 30 minutes shorter than next lunation 1194 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 35 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 34 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠26.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠47.7°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 30 June 2096 at 19:58 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 July 2096 at 15:28 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 404 587 km (251 399 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 786 km (227 289 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 01:01 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 15 July 2096 at 15:38 in ♉ Taurus.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 21 June 2096 at 00:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.330°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.318° in the next southern standstill on 5 July 2096 at 06:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 days on 5 July 2096 at 17:02 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
