Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 3 July 2082 at 06:59.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1914" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2082 after 1 day on 10 July 2082 at 03:10.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 4 July 2082 at 20:11 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 July 2082 at 16:24 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 374 566 km (232 745 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 169 km (251 139 mi).
8 days after its descending node on 30 June 2082 at 03:43 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 July 2082 at 02:53 in ♒ Aquarius.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 10:27 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-27.861°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠27.898° in its northern standstill point on 22 July 2082 at 18:54 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day 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.
