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 first ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1890".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2094.
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 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°).
11 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 July 2094 at 16:14 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 365 709 km (227 241 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 501 km (222 762 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 25 July 2094 at 20:41 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 August 2094 at 16:45 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 26 July 2094 at 04:07 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.317°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.329° in the next northern standstill on 8 August 2094 at 02:07 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
