Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1888".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2035.
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 438 of Meeus index or 1391 from Brown series.
Length of current 438 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 39 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2035. It is 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 439 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠9.1°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 12:30, this is 14 days after last perigee on 6 June 2035 at 11:36 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 4 July 2035 at 21:00 in ♊ Gemini.
This apogee Moon is 406 401 km (252 526 mi) away from Earth. It is 993 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 308 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
8 days after its ascending node on 11 June 2035 at 20:42 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 June 2035 at 11:14 in ♓ Pisces.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 7 June 2035 at 10:40 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.820°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.862° in the next southern standstill on 21 June 2035 at 08:16 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
