Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 25 June 2088 at 20:29.
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 first ∠2° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2088 after 3 days on 3 July 2088 at 23:22.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1094 of Meeus index or 2047 from Brown series.
Length of current 1094 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 45 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2088. It is 52 minutes shorter than next lunation 1095 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 10 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠3.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠18.9°. 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°).
11 days after point of perigee on 18 June 2088 at 20:56 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 July 2088 at 03:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 403 846 km (250 938 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 181 km (252 389 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 28 June 2088 at 05:57 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 July 2088 at 16:44 in ♈ Aries.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 18 June 2088 at 14:44 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.431°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.425° in the next southern standstill on 2 July 2088 at 04:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 3 days on 3 July 2088 at 23:22 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
