Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 19 June 2029 at 09:54.
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 ∠13° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2029 after 3 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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 364 of Meeus index or 1317 from Brown series.
Length of current 364 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 56 minutes longer than next lunation 365 length.
Length of current synodic month is 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 26 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠244.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠279.1°. 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 perigee on this date at 15:35, this is 15 days after last apogee on 6 June 2029 at 22:09 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 4 July 2029 at 16:05 in ♈ Aries.
This perigee Moon is 366 596 km (227 792 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 088 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 3 760 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after its descending node on 13 June 2029 at 04:49 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 June 2029 at 03:09 in ♑ Capricorn.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 11 June 2029 at 22:05 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.392°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.401° in the next southern standstill on 24 June 2029 at 23:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 3 days on 26 June 2029 at 03:22 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
