Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 24 June 2061 at 16:54.
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 first ∠1° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2061 after 3 days on 2 July 2061 at 20:52.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 760 of Meeus index or 1713 from Brown series.
Length of current 760 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 7 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 761 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠13.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠31.2°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 12:19, this is 12 days after last perigee on 16 June 2061 at 22:16 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 15 July 2061 at 03:23 in ♊ Gemini.
This apogee Moon is 405 739 km (252 115 mi) away from Earth. It is 331 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 970 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
3 days after its descending node on 25 June 2061 at 18:12 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 July 2061 at 03:50 in ♈ Aries.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 18 June 2061 at 03:42 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.260°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.248° in the next southern standstill on 2 July 2061 at 03:48 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 days on 2 July 2061 at 20:52 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
