Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 23 June 2047 at 10:36.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1835" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2047 after 12 days on 7 July 2047 at 10:33.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 587 of Meeus index or 1540 from Brown series.
Length of current 587 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 13 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes longer than next lunation 588 length.
Length of current synodic month is 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠240°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠274.9°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 18 June 2047 at 10:22 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 July 2047 at 04:56 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 390 709 km (242 775 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 988 km (227 414 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 13:16 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 7 July 2047 at 11:43 in ♑ Capricorn.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 22 June 2047 at 10:35 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.328°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.343° in the next southern standstill on 5 July 2047 at 15:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 7 July 2047 at 10:33 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
