Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 21 June 2062 at 21:43.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2062 after 28 days on 21 July 2062 at 12:47.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 772 of Meeus index or 1725 from Brown series.
Length of current 772 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 41 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2062. It is 7 minutes shorter than next lunation 773 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠343.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠358.8°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 08:23, this is 14 days after last perigee on 8 June 2062 at 10:43 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 6 July 2062 at 19:35 in ♋ Cancer.
This apogee Moon is 406 285 km (252 454 mi) away from Earth. It is 877 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 424 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
9 days after its descending node on 14 June 2062 at 09:08 in ♍ Virgo, 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 28 June 2062 at 23:25 in ♓ Pisces.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 21 June 2062 at 19:23 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.402°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.441° in the next northern standstill on 5 July 2062 at 17:31 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 6 July 2062 at 17:53 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
