Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 9 June 2030 at 03:36.
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 ∠5° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2030 after 1 day on 15 June 2030 at 18:41.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 376 of Meeus index or 1329 from Brown series.
Length of current 376 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 13 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes longer than next lunation 377 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 34 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠189°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠213.7°. 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 23:37, this is 14 days after last apogee on 31 May 2030 at 06:14 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 27 June 2030 at 14:14 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 358 183 km (222 565 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 325 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 173 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 days after its descending node on 1 June 2030 at 17:30 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 June 2030 at 05:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 1 June 2030 at 20:22 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.730°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.735° in the next southern standstill on 15 June 2030 at 07:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 15 June 2030 at 18:41 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
