Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1888".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2084.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1045 of Meeus index or 1998 from Brown series.
Length of current 1045 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 26 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2084. It is 45 minutes longer than next lunation 1046 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 42 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 21 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠180.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠203.8°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 06:12, this is 14 days after last apogee on 3 July 2084 at 00:38 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 30 July 2084 at 05:23 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 357 472 km (222 123 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 036 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 884 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♑ Capricorn at 07:42 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 31 July 2084 at 00:13 in ♋ Cancer.
At 07:42 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
2 days after previous South standstill on 15 July 2084 at 08:06 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.650°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.646° in the next northern standstill on 28 July 2084 at 10:54 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
