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 ∠23° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1943" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2050.
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 624 of Meeus index or 1577 from Brown series.
Length of current 624 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 625 length.
Length of current synodic month is 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠104.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠137°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 25 June 2050 at 04:29 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 July 2050 at 02:25 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 368 917 km (229 234 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 256 km (225 717 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 30 June 2050 at 22:15 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 July 2050 at 14:19 in ♉ Taurus.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 3 July 2050 at 03:14 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.482°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.446° in the next northern standstill on 15 July 2050 at 23:05 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
