Moon* ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 7 June 2003 at 20:28.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2003 after 1 day on 14 June 2003 at 11:16.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 42 of Meeus index or 995 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 19 minutes. It is 2 hours and 5 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 35 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 28 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠205.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠234.1°.
1 day after point of perigee on 12 June 2003 at 23:18 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 25 June 2003 at 02:25 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 365 075 km (226 847 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 233 km (251 800 mi).
1 day after descending node on 12 June 2003 at 21:16 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 June 2003 at 14:34 in ♉ Taurus.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 2 June 2003 at 15:27 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.491°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.477° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 June 2003 at 13:28 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 1 day on 14 June 2003 at 11:16 in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
