Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
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 ∠21° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1785" and ∠1890".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2096.
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 1192 of Meeus index or 2145 from Brown series.
Length of current 1192 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 36 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2096. It is 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 1193 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.7°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 3 June 2096 at 06:22 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 June 2096 at 18:27 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 401 633 km (249 563 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 025 km (224 331 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 4 June 2096 at 19:21 in ♏ Scorpio, 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 18 June 2096 at 09:30 in ♊ Gemini.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 24 May 2096 at 13:59 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.358°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.345° in the next southern standstill on 8 June 2096 at 00:25 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
