Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 7 June 2043 at 10:35.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1948" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2043 after 14 days on 22 June 2043 at 14:20.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 537 of Meeus index or 1490 from Brown series.
Length of current 537 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 538 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠15.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠33.6°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 6 June 2043 at 11:59 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 June 2043 at 23:28 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 368 047 km (228 694 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 646 km (252 057 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 2 June 2043 at 17:02 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 15 June 2043 at 09:52 in ♎ Libra.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 09:54 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.431°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.403° in its southern standstill point on 22 June 2043 at 14:03 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 14 days on 22 June 2043 at 14:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
