Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1859" and ∠1888".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2060.
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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
6 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 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 20 July 2060 at 04:58 in ♈ Aries.

5 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 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 July 2060 at 22:57 in ♈ Aries.

1 day after previous South standstill on 12 July 2060 at 09:29 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.639°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.680° in the next northern standstill on 25 July 2060 at 08:10 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
