Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1827" and ∠1889".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2060.
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 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°).
5 days 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 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 24 June 2060 at 12:41 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 392 388 km (243 819 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 989 km (228 036 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 10 June 2060 at 08:48 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 June 2060 at 21:23 in ♈ Aries.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 31 May 2060 at 15:36 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.668°. Next day 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.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
