Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 22 June 2100 at 01:11.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1803" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2100 after 23 days on 21 July 2100 at 10:12.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1242 of Meeus index or 2195 from Brown series.
Length of current 1242 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 35 minutes. It is 1 hour and 40 minutes longer than next lunation 1243 length.
Length of current synodic month is 9 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠227.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠261°. 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 19 June 2100 at 12:17 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 1 July 2100 at 09:51 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 397 649 km (247 088 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 573 km (251 390 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♓ Pisces at 05:37 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 11 July 2100 at 12:42 in ♍ Virgo.
At 05:37 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
5 days after previous South standstill on 21 June 2100 at 19:11 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.185°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.198° in the next northern standstill on 6 July 2100 at 01:14 in ♊ Gemini.
After 10 days on 7 July 2100 at 12:06 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
