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 4.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1889".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2030.
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 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 14 June 2030 at 23:37 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 June 2030 at 14:14 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 364 211 km (226 310 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 881 km (252 203 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 05:24 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 28 June 2030 at 23:50 in ♊ Gemini.
At 05:24 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 07:44 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-22.735°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠22.734° in its northern standstill point on 29 June 2030 at 02:45 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
