Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1780" and ∠1888".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2035.
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 439 of Meeus index or 1392 from Brown series.
Length of current 439 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 12 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 440 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠25.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
2 days after point of apogee on 17 July 2035 at 17:31 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 August 2035 at 04:06 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 402 724 km (250 241 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 719 km (224 140 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 9 July 2035 at 01:03 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 July 2035 at 13:46 in ♒ Aquarius.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 18 July 2035 at 15:35 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.832°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.787° in the next northern standstill on 1 August 2035 at 09:14 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
