Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 5 July 2060 at 17:38.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1837" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2060 after 1 day on 13 July 2060 at 15:08.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 748 of Meeus index or 1701 from Brown series.
Length of current 748 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 52 minutes. It is 2 hours and 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 749 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠54.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠84.5°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 6 July 2060 at 13:25 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 20 July 2060 at 04:58 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 390 204 km (242 462 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 731 km (229 740 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 7 July 2060 at 12:29 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 July 2060 at 22:57 in ♈ Aries.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 09:29 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-27.639°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠27.680° in its northern standstill point on 25 July 2060 at 08:10 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 13 July 2060 at 15:08 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
