Moon ♑ 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 ∠12° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1807" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2096.
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 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°).
4 days 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 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 July 2096 at 15:28 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 396 742 km (246 524 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 786 km (227 289 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 2 July 2096 at 01:01 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 July 2096 at 15:38 in ♉ Taurus.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 06:20 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-26.318°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠26.342° in its northern standstill point on 18 July 2096 at 09:23 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
