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 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1777" and ∠1889".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2052.
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 648 of Meeus index or 1601 from Brown series.
Length of current 648 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2052. It is 41 minutes shorter than next lunation 649 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 25 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠23.2°. 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 apogee on 10 June 2052 at 00:46 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 June 2052 at 08:22 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 403 266 km (250 578 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 167 km (223 797 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 6 June 2052 at 13:15 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 20 June 2052 at 22:46 in ♈ Aries.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 20:05 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.514°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.498° in its northern standstill point on 26 June 2052 at 04:20 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
