Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 9 July 2095 at 16:15.
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 ∠13° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1876" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2095 after 1 day 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 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1181 of Meeus index or 2134 from Brown series.
Length of current 1181 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 34 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes shorter than next lunation 1182 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 59 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠110.9°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 9 July 2095 at 01:10 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 21 July 2095 at 04:21 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 382 150 km (237 457 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 302 km (228 231 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 14 July 2095 at 15:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, 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 27 July 2095 at 11:36 in ♊ Gemini.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 07:31 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-24.908°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠24.923° in its northern standstill point on 29 July 2095 at 04:07 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 17 July 2095 at 08:31 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
