Gibbous ♎ Libra
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 26 May 2061 at 04:12.
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.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1797" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2061 after 4 days on 3 June 2061 at 06:09.
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 759 of Meeus index or 1712 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2061. It is 7 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 44 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 25 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠358.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠13.9°.
9 days after point of perigee on 19 May 2061 at 12:47 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 2 June 2061 at 04:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 398 799 km (247 802 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 301 km (252 464 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♎ Libra at 16:23 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 13 June 2061 at 01:57 in ♈ Aries.
12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
7 days since the previous standstill on 21 May 2061 at 17:45 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.328°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.272° at the point of next southern standstill on 4 June 2061 at 22:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 4 days on 3 June 2061 at 06:09 in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
