Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
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 ∠24° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1930" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2006.
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 80 of Meeus index or 1033 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 26 minutes. It is 2 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 18 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 51 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠97.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠131.2°.
9 days after point of apogee on 1 July 2006 at 20:12 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 13 July 2006 at 17:35 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 371 465 km (230 818 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 287 km (226 357 mi).
8 days after descending node on 2 July 2006 at 14:19 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 15 July 2006 at 20:25 in ♓ Pisces.
22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 9 July 2006 at 18:49 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.477°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.515° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 July 2006 at 14:34 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
