Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1899" and ∠1888".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2095.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
8 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 July 2095 at 04:21 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 377 355 km (234 478 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 302 km (228 231 mi).
2 days 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 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 July 2095 at 11:36 in ♊ Gemini.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 16 July 2095 at 07:31 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.908°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.923° in the next northern standstill on 29 July 2095 at 04:07 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
