Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1787" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2077 after 11 days on 6 July 2077 at 01:22.
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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 958 of Meeus index or 1911 from Brown series.
Length of current 958 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 46 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 959 length.
Length of current synodic month is 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠80.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠115.1°. 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°).
10 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 June 2077 at 13:19 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 401 079 km (249 219 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 298 km (251 219 mi).
5 days 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 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 July 2077 at 07:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.

3 days after previous North standstill on 21 June 2077 at 07:13 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.810°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.808° in the next southern standstill on 5 July 2077 at 16:53 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 11 days on 6 July 2077 at 01:22 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
