Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 2 June 2070 at 01:26.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1950" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2070 after 18 days on 23 June 2070 at 16:57.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 870 of Meeus index or 1823 from Brown series.
Length of current 870 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 16 minutes. It is 26 minutes longer than next lunation 871 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠350.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠5.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
11 days after point of apogee on 25 May 2070 at 10:55 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 June 2070 at 10:48 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 367 576 km (228 401 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 376 km (222 063 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 03:55 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 17 June 2070 at 21:35 in ♎ Libra.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 26 May 2070 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.834°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.846° in the next northern standstill on 9 June 2070 at 03:14 in ♊ Gemini.
After 3 days on 8 June 2070 at 18:24 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
