Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 22 June 2028 at 18:27.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1942" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2028 after 12 days on 6 July 2028 at 18:11.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 352 of Meeus index or 1305 from Brown series.
Length of current 352 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 34 minutes. It is 52 minutes longer than next lunation 353 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 59 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠308.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠330.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
10 days after point of apogee on 14 June 2028 at 04:46 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 26 June 2028 at 04:14 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 369 164 km (229 388 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 533 km (227 753 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 06:42 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 7 July 2028 at 09:34 in ♑ Capricorn.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 21 June 2028 at 22:15 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.920°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.933° in the next southern standstill on 4 July 2028 at 18:46 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 6 July 2028 at 18:11 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
