Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 7 July 2100 at 12:06.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1948" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2100 after 8 days on 21 July 2100 at 10:12.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1243 of Meeus index or 2196 from Brown series.
Length of current 1243 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 7 minutes longer than next lunation 1244 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠261°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠294.6°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 1 July 2100 at 09:51 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 July 2100 at 14:15 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 368 044 km (228 692 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 737 km (229 123 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 11 July 2100 at 12:42 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 July 2100 at 11:05 in ♓ Pisces.

6 days after previous North standstill on 6 July 2100 at 01:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.198°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.246° in the next southern standstill on 19 July 2100 at 03:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 8 days on 21 July 2100 at 10:12 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
