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 ∠23° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1937" and ∠1890".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2047.
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 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 6 June 2047 at 09:14 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 June 2047 at 10:22 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 369 994 km (229 904 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 209 km (251 785 mi).
11 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 June 2047 at 02:05 in ♑ Capricorn.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 06:04 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-25.326°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠25.328° in its northern standstill point on 22 June 2047 at 10:35 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
