Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 28 June 2094 at 09:58.
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 ∠8° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2094 after 27 days on 27 July 2094 at 17:39.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1168 of Meeus index or 2121 from Brown series.
Length of current 1168 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 1169 length.
Length of current synodic month is 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠109.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠141.9°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 11:51, this is 11 days after last apogee on 18 June 2094 at 13:22 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 16 July 2094 at 04:45 in ♍ Virgo.
This perigee Moon is 362 474 km (225 231 mi) away from Earth. It is 34 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 7 882 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days after its descending node on 28 June 2094 at 10:31 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 July 2094 at 11:47 in ♋ Cancer.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 28 June 2094 at 17:52 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.311°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.299° in the next northern standstill on 11 July 2094 at 20:37 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 days on 12 July 2094 at 13:36 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
