Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 28 May 2063 at 01:47.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1926" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2063 after 12 days on 11 June 2063 at 00:43.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 784 of Meeus index or 1737 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 4 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠301.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠325.5°.
9 days after point of apogee on 19 May 2063 at 21:24 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 June 2063 at 01:18 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 372 084 km (231 202 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 758 km (228 514 mi).
8 days after ascending node on 21 May 2063 at 05:36 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 3 June 2063 at 11:31 in ♍ Virgo.
8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 11:44 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠28.118°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-28.086° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 11 June 2063 at 12:30.
In 12 days on 11 June 2063 at 00:43 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.
