Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 2 July 2074 at 02:22.
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 ∠14° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2074 after 2 days on 8 July 2074 at 17:05.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 921 of Meeus index or 1874 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 44 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 19 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠218.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠250.9°.
Moon is at perigee at 14:26. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 20 June 2074 at 21:28 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 18 July 2074 at 12:55 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 362 554 km (225 281 mi) away from Earth. It is 46 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 7 802 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after ascending node on 26 June 2074 at 23:07 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 9 July 2074 at 19:46 in ♑ Capricorn.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 25 June 2074 at 05:18 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.016°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-21.006° at the point of next southern standstill on 8 July 2074 at 08:12 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 2 days on 8 July 2074 at 17:05 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
