Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 18 June 2084 at 10:00.
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 about ∠15° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2084 after 28 days on 17 July 2084 at 17:01.
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 1044 of Meeus index or 1997 from Brown series.
Length of current 1044 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 minute shorter than next lunation 1045 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠157°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠180.4°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 18 June 2084 at 20:15 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 July 2084 at 00:38 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 363 340 km (225 769 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 487 km (252 579 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♑ Capricorn at 20:57 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 3 July 2084 at 17:59 in ♋ Cancer.
At 20:57 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
1 day after previous South standstill on 17 June 2084 at 21:43 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.635°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.643° in the next northern standstill on 1 July 2084 at 04:53 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 3 July 2084 at 01:38 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
