Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 21 June 2039 at 17:21.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1809" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2039 after 11 days on 6 July 2039 at 02:03.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 488 of Meeus index or 1441 from Brown series.
Length of current 488 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes longer than next lunation 489 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠199.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠226.3°. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 19 June 2039 at 15:56 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 July 2039 at 20:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 396 232 km (246 207 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 517 km (223 394 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 21 June 2039 at 00:51 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 July 2039 at 14:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 22 June 2039 at 16:02 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.701°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.696° in the next southern standstill on 5 July 2039 at 22:01 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 11 days on 6 July 2039 at 02:03 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
