Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 31 May 2068 at 04:03.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1851" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2068 after 14 days on 15 June 2068 at 17:00.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 846 of Meeus index or 1799 from Brown series.
Length of current 846 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 8 minutes. It is 1 hour and 35 minutes shorter than next lunation 847 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 33 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠66°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠99.8°. 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 26 May 2068 at 09:16 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 June 2068 at 22:05 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 387 231 km (240 614 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 221 km (251 171 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 30 May 2068 at 13:21 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 June 2068 at 23:06 in ♏ Scorpio.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 31 May 2068 at 17:47 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.451°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.453° in the next southern standstill on 15 June 2068 at 04:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 14 days on 15 June 2068 at 17:00 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
