Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1934" and ∠1888".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2032.
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 401 of Meeus index or 1354 from Brown series.
Length of current 401 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter than next lunation 402 length.
Length of current synodic month is 25 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 38 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠108.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠140.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
9 days after point of apogee on 13 June 2032 at 16:28 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 June 2032 at 14:55 in ♑ Capricorn.

3 days after its ascending node on 19 June 2032 at 13:56 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 July 2032 at 05:24 in ♉ Taurus.

1 day after previous South standstill on 22 June 2032 at 16:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.677°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.659° in the next northern standstill on 5 July 2032 at 14:56 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
