Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 3 July 2086 at 20:10.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1957" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2086 after 20 days on 26 July 2086 at 09:24.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 2 July 2086 at 04:43 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 July 2086 at 04:25 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 366 271 km (227 590 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 547 km (251 374 mi).
10 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 July 2086 at 05:01 in ♊ Gemini.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 25 June 2086 at 15:51 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.460°. Next 3 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 5 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.
