Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 22 June 2030 at 17:19.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2030 after 17 days on 15 July 2030 at 02:12.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 376 of Meeus index or 1329 from Brown series.
Length of current 376 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 13 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes longer than next lunation 377 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 34 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠189°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠213.7°. 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 apogee on this date at 14:14, this is 12 days after last perigee on 14 June 2030 at 23:37 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 13 July 2030 at 05:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 405 881 km (252 203 mi) away from Earth. It is 473 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 828 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 days after its ascending node on 15 June 2030 at 05:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 June 2030 at 23:50 in ♊ Gemini.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 15 June 2030 at 07:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.735°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.734° in the next northern standstill on 29 June 2030 at 02:45 in ♊ Gemini.
After 3 days on 30 June 2030 at 21:34 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
