Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 27 June 2086 at 00:04.
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 ∠10° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1933" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2086 after 26 days on 26 July 2086 at 09:24.
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 1069 of Meeus index or 2022 from Brown series.
Length of current 1069 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 50 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes shorter than next lunation 1070 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠62.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠95.5°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 19 June 2086 at 09:56 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 July 2086 at 04:43 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 370 838 km (230 428 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 036 km (229 308 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 25 June 2086 at 07:25 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 July 2086 at 05:01 in ♊ Gemini.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous South standstill on 25 June 2086 at 15:51 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.460°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.447° in the next northern standstill on 8 July 2086 at 14:01 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 10 July 2086 at 22:02 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
