Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 29 June 2083 at 16:51.
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 ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1917" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2083 after 27 days on 29 July 2083 at 01:00.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1032 of Meeus index or 1985 from Brown series.
Length of current 1032 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 17 minutes. It is 1 hour and 26 minutes longer than next lunation 1033 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 30 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠203.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠232°. 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 28 June 2083 at 06:42 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 July 2083 at 10:51 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 373 886 km (232 322 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 424 km (251 919 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♒ Aquarius at 19:10 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 16 July 2083 at 06:07 in ♌ Leo.
At 19:10 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
2 days after previous South standstill on 28 June 2083 at 15:42 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.916°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.931° in the next northern standstill on 12 July 2083 at 11:43 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 14 July 2083 at 23:54 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
