Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 13 June 2077 at 14:08.
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 ∠16° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1887" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2077 after 16 days on 6 July 2077 at 01:22.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 957 of Meeus index or 1910 from Brown series.
Length of current 957 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 17 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter than next lunation 958 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠50.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠80.3°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 13 June 2077 at 20:17 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 June 2077 at 13:19 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 379 834 km (236 018 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 298 km (251 219 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 18 June 2077 at 21:39 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 July 2077 at 07:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 8 June 2077 at 08:58 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.830°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.810° in the next northern standstill on 21 June 2077 at 07:13 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 20 June 2077 at 12:55 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
