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 ∠12° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1891".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2039.
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 487 of Meeus index or 1440 from Brown series.
Length of current 487 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 10 minutes longer than next lunation 488 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 59 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 4 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠176.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠199.2°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 12:01, this is 13 days after last apogee on 23 May 2039 at 12:06 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 19 June 2039 at 15:56 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 357 205 km (221 957 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 303 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 151 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 days after its ascending node on 24 May 2039 at 18:40 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 June 2039 at 04:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 26 May 2039 at 10:06 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.699°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.703° in the next southern standstill on 8 June 2039 at 11:24 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
