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 ∠14° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2093.
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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1156 of Meeus index or 2109 from Brown series.
Length of current 1156 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 31 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2093. It is 13 minutes longer than next lunation 1157 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 47 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 16 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠167.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠190.3°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 18:17, this is 13 days after last apogee on 25 June 2093 at 06:06 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 22 July 2093 at 09:07 in ♋ Cancer.
This perigee Moon is 357 096 km (221 889 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2093. It is 5 412 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 671 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 days after its ascending node on 25 June 2093 at 19:10 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 9 July 2093 at 06:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 09:04 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-21.641°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠21.635° in its northern standstill point on 21 July 2093 at 21:21 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
