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 4.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1803" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2028.
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 352 of Meeus index or 1305 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 34 minutes. It is 52 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 4 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠308.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠330.4°.
11 days after point of perigee on 26 June 2028 at 04:14 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 11 July 2028 at 22:26 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 397 521 km (247 008 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 945 km (251 621 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♑ Capricorn at 09:34 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 21 July 2028 at 16:09 in ♋ Cancer.
At 09:34 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
2 days since the previous standstill on 4 July 2028 at 18:46 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.933°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.940° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 July 2028 at 07:49 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
