Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 29 May 2077 at 16:43.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1832" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2077 after 1 day on 6 June 2077 at 15:07.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 957 of Meeus index or 1910 from Brown series.
Length of current 957 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 17 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter than next lunation 958 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠50.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠80.3°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 30 May 2077 at 18:38 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 June 2077 at 20:17 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 391 319 km (243 154 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 667 km (229 700 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 23:08 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 18 June 2077 at 21:39 in ♊ Gemini.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 24 May 2077 at 22:23 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.836°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.830° in the next southern standstill on 8 June 2077 at 08:58 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day on 6 June 2077 at 15:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
