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 first ∠4° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1894" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2020.
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 253 of Meeus index or 1206 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 53 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 17 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠263.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠296.9°.
4 days after point of perigee on 30 June 2020 at 02:09 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 12 July 2020 at 19:27 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 378 367 km (235 106 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 201 km (251 159 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 03:18 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 18 July 2020 at 12:33 in ♊ Gemini.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 22 June 2020 at 03:56 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.070°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-24.064° at the point of next southern standstill on 5 July 2020 at 01:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
