Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 9 June 2093 at 10:09.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2093 after 28 days on 8 July 2093 at 17:14.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1155 of Meeus index or 2108 from Brown series.
Length of current 1155 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 57 minutes. It is 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 1156 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠142°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠167.5°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 08:55, this is 12 days after last apogee on 28 May 2093 at 21:26 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 25 June 2093 at 06:06 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 358 605 km (222 827 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 903 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 751 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days after its ascending node on 29 May 2093 at 14:36 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 June 2093 at 20:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 21:56 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-21.625°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠21.648° in its northern standstill point on 24 June 2093 at 15:06 in ♋ Cancer.
After 13 days on 23 June 2093 at 21:04 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
