Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2088.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 2 July 2088 at 03:52 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 July 2088 at 05:29 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 403 422 km (250 675 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 287 km (223 251 mi).
6 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 8 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 previous South standstill on 2 July 2088 at 04:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.425°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.354° in the next northern standstill on 16 July 2088 at 02:03 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
