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 ∠5° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" 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 15 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 22:40, this is 12 days after last apogee on 4 June 2049 at 14:39 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 2 July 2049 at 01:01 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 359 142 km (223 160 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 366 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 214 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
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 11 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.
1 day after previous South standstill on 15 June 2049 at 07:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.089°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.088° in the next northern standstill 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.
