Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 14 June 2062 at 01:53.
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 ∠7° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1830" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2062 after 4 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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 772 of Meeus index or 1725 from Brown series.
Length of current 772 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 41 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2062. It is 7 minutes shorter than next lunation 773 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠343.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠358.8°. 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 8 June 2062 at 10:43 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 June 2062 at 08:23 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 391 730 km (243 410 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 285 km (252 454 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 14 June 2062 at 09:08 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 June 2062 at 23:25 in ♓ Pisces.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 8 June 2062 at 07:41 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.432°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.402° in the next southern standstill on 21 June 2062 at 19:23 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 4 days on 21 June 2062 at 21:43 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
