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 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2075.
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 933 of Meeus index or 1886 from Brown series.
Length of current 933 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 32 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2075. It is 33 minutes longer than next lunation 934 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠170.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠193.2°. 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 perigee on this date at 08:13, this is 13 days after last apogee on 14 June 2075 at 16:13 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 11 July 2075 at 19:15 in ♊ Gemini.
This perigee Moon is 357 098 km (221 890 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2075. It is 5 410 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 673 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 21:55 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 12 July 2075 at 17:08 in ♋ Cancer.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
At 18:29 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-22.668°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠22.666° in its northern standstill point on 12 July 2075 at 12:41 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
