Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 17 June 2095 at 22:05.
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 ∠15° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1932" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2095 after 25 days on 17 July 2095 at 08:31.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1180 of Meeus index or 2133 from Brown series.
Length of current 1180 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour and 38 minutes shorter than next lunation 1181 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠47.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76.3°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 11 June 2095 at 06:34 in ♎ Libra. 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 25 June 2095 at 17:27 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 370 945 km (230 495 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 538 km (229 620 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 17 June 2095 at 07:30 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 June 2095 at 06:21 in ♊ Gemini.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 18 June 2095 at 23:27 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.916°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.901° in the next northern standstill on 1 July 2095 at 21:09 in ♋ Cancer.
After 10 days on 1 July 2095 at 19:54 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
