Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 12 July 2094 at 13:36.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2094 after 11 days on 27 July 2094 at 17:39.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1169 of Meeus index or 2122 from Brown series.
Length of current 1169 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 1 minute. It is 55 minutes shorter than next lunation 1170 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 47 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠141.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠167.4°. 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 apogee on this date at 04:45, this is 15 days after last perigee on 30 June 2094 at 11:51 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 28 July 2094 at 16:14 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 405 856 km (252 187 mi) away from Earth. It is 448 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 853 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
5 days after its ascending node on 11 July 2094 at 11:47 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 25 July 2094 at 20:41 in ♑ Capricorn.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 11 July 2094 at 20:37 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.299°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.317° in the next southern standstill on 26 July 2094 at 04:07 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 11 days on 27 July 2094 at 17:39 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
