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 ∠17° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2036.
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 451 of Meeus index or 1404 from Brown series.
Length of current 451 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 7 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2036. It is 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 452 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠338.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠354.1°. 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 25 June 2036 at 10:31 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 July 2036 at 16:20 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 403 803 km (250 912 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 005 km (252 280 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 27 June 2036 at 02:46 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 July 2036 at 00:53 in ♒ Aquarius.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 7 July 2036 at 21:09 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.902°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.877° in the next northern standstill on 22 July 2036 at 00:37 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
