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 ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1860" and ∠1889".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2029.
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 365 of Meeus index or 1318 from Brown series.
Length of current 365 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 5 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes longer than next lunation 366 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 39 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 30 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠279.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠309.2°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 18 July 2029 at 11:25 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 August 2029 at 10:42 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 385 451 km (239 508 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 310 km (251 227 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 23 July 2029 at 11:12 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 August 2029 at 20:21 in ♊ Gemini.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 22 July 2029 at 07:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.380°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.323° in the next northern standstill on 5 August 2029 at 14:53 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
