Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 28 June 2054 at 07:30.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1890" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2054 after 17 days on 19 July 2054 at 17:47.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 673 of Meeus index or 1626 from Brown series.
Length of current 673 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 54 minutes. It is 40 minutes longer than next lunation 674 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠316.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠336°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 24 June 2054 at 17:32 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 July 2054 at 21:10 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 379 333 km (235 707 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 411 km (223 949 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 25 June 2054 at 04:56 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 July 2054 at 11:43 in ♌ Leo.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 20 June 2054 at 19:41 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.200°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.186° in the next northern standstill on 5 July 2054 at 00:45 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 5 July 2054 at 10:34 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
