Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 1 July 2070 at 10:33.
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 ∠23° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2070 after 16 days on 23 July 2070 at 07:02.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 871 of Meeus index or 1824 from Brown series.
Length of current 871 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 50 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2070. It is 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 872 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠5.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠21.1°. 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 perigee on this date at 18:57, this is 15 days after last apogee on 21 June 2070 at 14:15 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 19 July 2070 at 01:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 359 714 km (223 516 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 794 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 642 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
4 days after its descending node on 2 July 2070 at 07:45 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 July 2070 at 23:10 in ♎ Libra.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 14:51 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.816°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.774° in its southern standstill point on 20 July 2070 at 08:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 8 July 2070 at 01:14 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
