Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 10 July 2061 at 10:23.
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 about ∠18° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2061 after 19 days on 1 August 2061 at 10:11.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
12 days after point of apogee on 29 June 2061 at 12:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 July 2061 at 03:23 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 364 269 km (226 346 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 013 km (224 944 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 10 July 2061 at 03:50 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 July 2061 at 20:17 in ♎ Libra.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 2 July 2061 at 03:48 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.248°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.294° in the next northern standstill on 15 July 2061 at 13:04 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 days on 17 July 2061 at 01:10 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
