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 ∠10° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1894" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2029.
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 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 22 June 2029 at 15:35 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 July 2029 at 16:05 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 378 395 km (235 124 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 317 km (251 231 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♑ Capricorn at 03:09 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 10 July 2029 at 12:33 in ♋ Cancer.
At 03:09 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
1 day after previous South standstill on 24 June 2029 at 23:29 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.401°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.399° in the next northern standstill on 9 July 2029 at 05:56 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
