Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 31 May 2072 at 22:18.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2072 after 22 days on 30 June 2072 at 10:21.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 895 of Meeus index or 1848 from Brown series.
Length of current 895 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 40 minutes longer than next lunation 896 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠285°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠313.1°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 12:42, this is 14 days after last perigee on 23 May 2072 at 23:46 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 19 June 2072 at 10:24 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 404 216 km (251 168 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 192 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 493 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
12 days after its ascending node on 25 May 2072 at 15:57 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 June 2072 at 10:43 in ♓ Pisces.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 2 June 2072 at 16:38 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.669°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.692° in the next northern standstill on 17 June 2072 at 00:01 in ♋ Cancer.
After 8 days on 16 June 2072 at 09:57 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
