Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1774" and ∠1888".
The Full Moon this days is the Buck of July 2098.
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 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 30 June 2098 at 07:43 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 July 2098 at 11:43 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 404 085 km (251 087 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 183 km (252 390 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 6 July 2098 at 02:56 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 July 2098 at 16:26 in ♈ Aries.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 11 July 2098 at 22:01 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.167°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.239° in the next northern standstill on 26 July 2098 at 04:44 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
