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 5.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1791" and ∠1888".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2027.
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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 339 of Meeus index or 1292 from Brown series.
Length of current 339 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 22 minutes. It is 19 minutes longer than next lunation 340 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 22 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 47 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠330.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠347.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
11 days after point of perigee on 6 June 2027 at 14:54 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 June 2027 at 05:08 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 400 199 km (248 672 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 698 km (252 089 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 8 June 2027 at 19:23 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 June 2027 at 18:25 in ♒ Aquarius.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 14:51 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-27.134°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠27.165° in its northern standstill point on 2 July 2027 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
