Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 26 June 2082 at 05:16.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1940" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2082 after 9 days on 10 July 2082 at 03:10.
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 1020 of Meeus index or 1973 from Brown series.
Length of current 1020 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 38 minutes. It is 1 hour and 14 minutes longer than next lunation 1021 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 3 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠265.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠298.1°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 19 June 2082 at 21:53 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 July 2082 at 20:11 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 369 568 km (229 639 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 135 km (229 370 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♌ Leo at 03:43 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 13 July 2082 at 02:53 in ♒ Aquarius.

5 days after previous North standstill on 25 June 2082 at 10:57 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.827°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.861° in the next southern standstill on 8 July 2082 at 10:27 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 9 days on 10 July 2082 at 03:10 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
