Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1946" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2087 after 16 days on 15 July 2087 at 19:54.
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 28 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 28 June 2087 at 01:08 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 July 2087 at 22:18 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 368 344 km (228 878 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 488 km (251 337 mi).
2 days 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 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 July 2087 at 23:01 in ♏ Scorpio.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 00:49 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠20.796°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-20.759° in its southern standstill point on 13 July 2087 at 01:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
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.
