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 ∠23° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1873" and ∠1892".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2015.
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 190 of Meeus index or 1143 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 27 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 17 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠48.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠78.1°.
7 days after point of apogee on 26 May 2015 at 22:12 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 10 June 2015 at 04:39 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 382 637 km (237 760 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 713 km (229 729 mi).
5 days after ascending node on 28 May 2015 at 14:40 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 10 June 2015 at 23:30 in ♈ Aries.
5 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 21:10 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-18.440°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠18.457° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 16 June 2015 at 19:47.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
