Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 7 July 2087 at 18:24.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2087 after 5 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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1082 of Meeus index or 2035 from Brown series.
Length of current 1082 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes shorter than next lunation 1083 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠37.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠62.7°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 9 July 2087 at 22:18 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 July 2087 at 08:02 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 405 442 km (251 930 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 392 km (228 908 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 23:01 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 24 July 2087 at 12:18 in ♉ Taurus.
At 23:01 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
11 days after previous North standstill on 29 June 2087 at 00:49 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.796°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.759° in the next southern standstill on 13 July 2087 at 01:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 5 days on 15 July 2087 at 19:54 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
