Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 8 June 2085 at 02:02.
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 ∠23° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2085 after 26 days on 7 July 2085 at 10:14.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1056 of Meeus index or 2009 from Brown series.
Length of current 1056 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 30 minutes shorter than next lunation 1057 length.
Length of current synodic month is 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠94.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠128.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 19:37, this is 11 days after last apogee on 29 May 2085 at 22:33 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 26 June 2085 at 15:24 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 364 665 km (226 592 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 157 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 5 691 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its ascending node on 9 June 2085 at 01:14 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 June 2085 at 04:11 in ♋ Cancer.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 8 June 2085 at 03:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.119°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.128° in the next northern standstill on 21 June 2085 at 02:38 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 22 June 2085 at 03:18 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
