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 ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1925" and ∠1891".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2023.
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 289 of Meeus index or 1242 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 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 equal to the mean synodic month length. It is %hours_to_shortest% and %minutes_to_shortest% longer than the 21st century's shortest and %hours_to_longest% and %minutes_to_longest% shorter than the 21st century's longest synodic months.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠92.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠127.4°.
9 days after point of apogee on 26 May 2023 at 01:39 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 June 2023 at 23:07 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 372 445 km (231 427 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 860 km (226 713 mi).
3 days after descending node on 1 June 2023 at 06:23 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 14 June 2023 at 00:05 in ♉ Taurus.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 22 May 2023 at 14:08 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.903°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-27.866° at the point of next southern standstill on 5 June 2023 at 16:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
