Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 1 July 2089 at 03:43.
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 1.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1857" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2089 after 20 days on 22 July 2089 at 14:50.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1106 of Meeus index or 2059 from Brown series.
Length of current 1106 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 3 minutes. It is 23 minutes longer than next lunation 1107 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 41 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 28 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠331.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠348.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
6 days after point of apogee on 26 June 2089 at 00:52 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 July 2089 at 18:12 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 386 045 km (239 877 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 994 km (222 447 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 1 July 2089 at 11:25 in ♈ Aries, 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 13 July 2089 at 23:07 in ♎ Libra.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 22 June 2089 at 12:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.620°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.574° in the next northern standstill on 6 July 2089 at 18:10 in ♊ Gemini.
After 5 days on 8 July 2089 at 01:47 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
