Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 8 July 2070 at 01:14.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1930" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2070 after 13 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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 872 of Meeus index or 1825 from Brown series.
Length of current 872 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 37 minutes. It is 2 hours shorter than next lunation 873 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 7 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 2 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠21.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠40.1°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 6 July 2070 at 18:57 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 July 2070 at 01:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 371 369 km (230 758 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 342 km (251 868 mi).
7 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 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 July 2070 at 23:10 in ♎ Libra.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 6 July 2070 at 14:51 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.816°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.774° in the next southern standstill on 20 July 2070 at 08:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 23 July 2070 at 07:02 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
