Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 6 June 2054 at 02:40.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1946" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2054 after 12 days on 20 June 2054 at 03:42.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 673 of Meeus index or 1626 from Brown series.
Length of current 673 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 54 minutes. It is 40 minutes longer than next lunation 674 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠316.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠336°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 28 May 2054 at 00:43 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 8 June 2054 at 21:43 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 368 416 km (228 923 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 007 km (226 805 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 29 May 2054 at 02:37 in ♓ Pisces, 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 11 June 2054 at 07:33 in ♍ Virgo.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 14:08 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠19.164°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-19.200° in its southern standstill point on 20 June 2054 at 19:41 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 12 days on 20 June 2054 at 03:42 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
