Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 6 June 2060 at 00:44.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2060 after 4 days on 14 June 2060 at 03:37.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 747 of Meeus index or 1700 from Brown series.
Length of current 747 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 35 minutes. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes shorter than next lunation 748 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠31.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠54.1°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 8 June 2060 at 19:26 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 15 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 24 June 2060 at 12:41 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 405 414 km (251 913 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 15 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 989 km (228 036 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 27 May 2060 at 15:43 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 June 2060 at 08:48 in ♏ Scorpio.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous North standstill on 31 May 2060 at 15:36 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.668°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.634° in the next southern standstill on 15 June 2060 at 02:38 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 4 days on 14 June 2060 at 03:37 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
