Moon* ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 18 June 2021 at 03:54.
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 ∠14° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2021 after 1 day on 24 June 2021 at 18:40.
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 265 of Meeus index or 1218 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 24 minutes. It is 1 hour and 50 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 40 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 23 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠202.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠230.1°.
Moon is at perigee at 09:58. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 8 June 2021 at 02:27 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 5 July 2021 at 14:48 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 359 960 km (223 669 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 548 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 396 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 06:07 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 6 July 2021 at 22:41 in ♊ Gemini.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 12 June 2021 at 04:11 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.640°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-25.631° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 June 2021 at 05:49 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 1 day on 24 June 2021 at 18:40 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.
