Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days 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.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2028 after 10 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 4 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 04:14, this is 11 days after last apogee on 14 June 2028 at 04:46 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 11 July 2028 at 22:26 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 366 533 km (227 753 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 025 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 3 823 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days after its descending node on 24 June 2028 at 06:42 in ♋ Cancer, 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 7 July 2028 at 09:34 in ♑ Capricorn.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 21 June 2028 at 22:15 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.920°. Next 8 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 10 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.
