Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 20 July 2094 at 17:25.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1902" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2094 after 3 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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 16 July 2094 at 04:45 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 July 2094 at 16:14 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 376 878 km (234 181 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 501 km (222 762 mi).
13 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 25 July 2094 at 20:41 in ♑ Capricorn.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 11 July 2094 at 20:37 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.299°. Next day 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 3 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.
