Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 27 June 2071 at 18:21.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2071 after 13 days on 12 July 2071 at 08:25.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 884 of Meeus index or 1837 from Brown series.
Length of current 884 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 36 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2071. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 885 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠350.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠5.3°. 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 08:00, this is 12 days after last apogee on 15 June 2071 at 11:49 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 12 July 2071 at 16:49 in ♑ Capricorn.
This perigee Moon is 357 750 km (222 296 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 758 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 606 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after its descending node on 21 June 2071 at 02:58 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 3 July 2071 at 14:17 in ♍ Virgo.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 27 June 2071 at 07:57 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.410°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.403° in the next southern standstill on 10 July 2071 at 15:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 12 July 2071 at 08:25 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
