Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 1 June 2047 at 11:54.
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 ∠24° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2047 after 1 day on 8 June 2047 at 02:05.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 586 of Meeus index or 1539 from Brown series.
Length of current 586 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 8 minutes. It is 1 hour and 55 minutes longer than next lunation 587 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 24 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠210.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠240°. 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 09:14, this is 15 days after last apogee on 21 May 2047 at 20:02 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 18 June 2047 at 10:22 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 361 058 km (224 351 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 450 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 298 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after its descending node on 28 May 2047 at 08:07 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 June 2047 at 02:05 in ♑ Capricorn.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 26 May 2047 at 04:23 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.322°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.326° in the next southern standstill on 8 June 2047 at 06:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 1 day on 8 June 2047 at 02:05 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
