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 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1890".
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 15 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 6 June 2039 at 12:01 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 June 2039 at 15:56 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 364 280 km (226 353 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 283 km (252 453 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 04:24 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 21 June 2039 at 00:51 in ♊ Gemini.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 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.
