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 first ∠3° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1878" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2064.
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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 797 of Meeus index or 1750 from Brown series.
Length of current 797 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes longer than next lunation 798 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 19 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 50 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠269.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠301.5°. 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°).
5 days after point of perigee on 23 June 2064 at 00:41 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 July 2064 at 04:32 in ♈ Aries.

9 days after its descending node on 18 June 2064 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 July 2064 at 18:41 in ♒ Aquarius.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 27 June 2064 at 18:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.335°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.364° in the next northern standstill on 12 July 2064 at 04:20 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
