Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 31 May 2062 at 10:44.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1859" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2062 after 19 days on 21 June 2062 at 21:43.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 771 of Meeus index or 1724 from Brown series.
Length of current 771 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than next lunation 772 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠325.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠343.6°. 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 27 May 2062 at 00:01 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 June 2062 at 10:43 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 385 642 km (239 627 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 773 km (222 931 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 1 June 2062 at 21:30 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 June 2062 at 09:08 in ♍ Virgo.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 25 May 2062 at 13:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.459°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.432° in the next northern standstill on 8 June 2062 at 07:41 in ♊ Gemini.
After 4 days on 7 June 2062 at 11:12 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
