Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 29 June 2098 at 02:06.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2098 after 12 days on 13 July 2098 at 10:35.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1218 of Meeus index or 2171 from Brown series.
Length of current 1218 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 45 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2098. It is 17 minutes shorter than next lunation 1219 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 10 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠339.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠355.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:43, this is 12 days after last apogee on 18 June 2098 at 01:07 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 15 July 2098 at 11:43 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 359 588 km (223 438 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 920 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 768 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
6 days after its ascending node on 23 June 2098 at 14:19 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 July 2098 at 02:56 in ♎ Libra.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 28 June 2098 at 19:01 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.163°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.167° in the next southern standstill on 11 July 2098 at 22:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 days on 13 July 2098 at 10:35 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
