Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 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.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1773" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2030 after 15 days on 15 July 2030 at 02:12.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 27 June 2030 at 14:14 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 July 2030 at 05:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 404 297 km (251 219 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 792 km (224 807 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 28 June 2030 at 23:50 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 July 2030 at 14:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 02:45 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.734°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.706° in its southern standstill point on 12 July 2030 at 17:53 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day 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.
