Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 10 June 2038 at 11:11.
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 ∠18° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2038 after 2 days on 17 June 2038 at 02:30.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 475 of Meeus index or 1428 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 24 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 39 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠226°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠259.5°.
Moon is at perigee at 15:26. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 29 May 2038 at 20:16 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 26 June 2038 at 12:55 in ♈ Aries.
This perigee Moon is 363 752 km (226 025 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 244 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 604 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after ascending node on 5 June 2038 at 06:06 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 18 June 2038 at 02:42 in ♑ Capricorn.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 5 June 2038 at 09:24 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.031°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.039° at the point of next southern standstill on 18 June 2038 at 05:58 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 2 days on 17 June 2038 at 02:30 in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
