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 ∠20° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1955" and ∠1889".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2049.
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 611 of Meeus index or 1564 from Brown series.
Length of current 611 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 50 minutes. It is 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 612 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 6 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 57 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠136.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠162.9°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 4 June 2049 at 14:39 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 June 2049 at 22:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 366 735 km (227 879 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 142 km (223 160 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 14 June 2049 at 17:59 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 June 2049 at 17:38 in ♊ Gemini.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 07:58 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-22.089°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠22.088° in its northern standstill point on 28 June 2049 at 11:03 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
