Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 13 July 2062 at 11:43.
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 about ∠5° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2062 after 2 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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
12 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 July 2062 at 10:49 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 404 912 km (251 601 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 330 km (252 482 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 11 July 2062 at 11:24 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 July 2062 at 00:55 in ♓ Pisces.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 00:25 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-28.466°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠28.542° in its northern standstill point on 2 August 2062 at 02:58 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 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.
