Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 16 June 2093 at 01:19.
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 2.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1850" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2093 after 20 days on 8 July 2093 at 17:14.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
8 days after point of perigee on 10 June 2093 at 08:55 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 June 2093 at 06:06 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 387 550 km (240 812 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 382 km (252 514 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 11 June 2093 at 20:52 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 June 2093 at 19:10 in ♋ Cancer.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 10 June 2093 at 21:56 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.625°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.648° in the next northern standstill on 24 June 2093 at 15:06 in ♋ Cancer.
After 5 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.
