Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 4 June 2029 at 01:19.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2029 after 19 days on 26 June 2029 at 03:22.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 363 of Meeus index or 1316 from Brown series.
Length of current 363 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours and 7 minutes longer than next lunation 364 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 24 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠213.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠244.2°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 22:09, this is 11 days after last perigee on 25 May 2029 at 22:19 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 22 June 2029 at 15:35 in ♏ Scorpio.
This apogee Moon is 405 105 km (251 721 mi) away from Earth. It is 303 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 604 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
7 days after its ascending node on 29 May 2029 at 17:34 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 June 2029 at 04:49 in ♋ Cancer.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 28 May 2029 at 14:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.396°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.392° in the next northern standstill on 11 June 2029 at 22:05 in ♊ Gemini.
After 5 days on 12 June 2029 at 03:51 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
