Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 2 July 2097 at 17:05.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2097 after 15 days on 24 July 2097 at 09:54.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1205 of Meeus index or 2158 from Brown series.
Length of current 1205 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 44 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2097. It is 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 1206 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠355.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 18:43, this is 14 days after last apogee on 24 June 2097 at 09:04 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 21 July 2097 at 14:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 357 840 km (222 351 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 668 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 516 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after its ascending node on 4 July 2097 at 19:44 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 July 2097 at 10:55 in ♏ Scorpio.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 15:01 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠27.459°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-27.475° in its southern standstill point on 22 July 2097 at 05:45 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day on 9 July 2097 at 08:58 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
