Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 23 June 2087 at 17:33.
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 ∠11° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2087 after 17 days on 15 July 2087 at 19:54.
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 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1081 of Meeus index or 2034 from Brown series.
Length of current 1081 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 52 minutes. It is 57 minutes shorter than next lunation 1082 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠19°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠37.8°. 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 01:08, this is 15 days after last apogee on 12 June 2087 at 06:07 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 9 July 2087 at 22:18 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 363 598 km (225 929 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 090 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 758 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 27 June 2087 at 08:36 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 July 2087 at 23:01 in ♏ Scorpio.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 15 June 2087 at 17:46 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.814°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.796° in the next northern standstill on 29 June 2087 at 00:49 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 30 June 2087 at 09:31 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
