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 ∠8° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1888".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2062.
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 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°).
14 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 June 2062 at 08:23 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 405 295 km (251 839 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 285 km (252 454 mi).
8 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 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 June 2062 at 23:25 in ♓ Pisces.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 21 June 2062 at 19:23 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.402°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.441° in the next northern standstill on 5 July 2062 at 17:31 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
