Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
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 ∠16° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1891".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2061.
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 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°.
1 day after point of apogee on 2 June 2061 at 04:48 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 16 June 2061 at 22:16 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 404 878 km (251 580 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 371 km (222 681 mi).
4 days after descending node on 29 May 2061 at 16:23 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 13 June 2061 at 01:57 in ♈ Aries.
17 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 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 day to face maximum declination of ∠-28.272° at the point of next southern standstill on 4 June 2061 at 22:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
