Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 21 June 2081 at 07:32.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2081 after 24 days on 20 July 2081 at 20:22.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1007 of Meeus index or 1960 from Brown series.
Length of current 1007 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1008 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠298.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠322.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
14 days after point of perigee on 11 June 2081 at 17:00 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 June 2081 at 03:39 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 405 406 km (251 908 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 502 km (251 346 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 13 June 2081 at 20:45 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 June 2081 at 15:47 in ♓ Pisces.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 21 June 2081 at 03:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.324°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.356° in the next northern standstill on 5 July 2081 at 12:53 in ♊ Gemini.
After 10 days on 6 July 2081 at 17:44 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
