Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 6 July 2062 at 17:53.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1951" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2062 after 12 days on 21 July 2062 at 12:47.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 773 of Meeus index or 1726 from Brown series.
Length of current 773 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 48 minutes. It is 1 hour and 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 774 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 57 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠358.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠14°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 6 July 2062 at 19:35 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 July 2062 at 10:49 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 367 435 km (228 314 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 330 km (252 482 mi).
10 days after its ascending node on 28 June 2062 at 23:25 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 July 2062 at 11:24 in ♍ Virgo.

3 days after previous North standstill on 5 July 2062 at 17:31 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.441°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.466° in the next southern standstill on 19 July 2062 at 00:25 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 12 days on 21 July 2062 at 12:47 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
