Moon* ♐ Sagittarius
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 ∠17° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1938" and ∠1889".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2038.
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 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°.
1 day after point of perigee on 14 June 2038 at 15:26 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 26 June 2038 at 12:55 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 369 892 km (229 840 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 680 km (251 456 mi).
11 days after ascending node on 5 June 2038 at 06:06 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 18 June 2038 at 02:42 in ♑ Capricorn.
11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 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 day to face maximum declination of ∠-23.039° at the point of next southern standstill on 18 June 2038 at 05:58 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
