Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1912" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2077.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 27 June 2077 at 13:19 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 July 2077 at 14:18 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 374 948 km (232 982 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 710 km (227 863 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 3 July 2077 at 07:19 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 July 2077 at 02:42 in ♊ Gemini.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 5 July 2077 at 16:53 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.808°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.808° in the next northern standstill on 18 July 2077 at 14:18 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
