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 ∠15° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1854" and ∠1891".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2077.
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 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°).
6 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 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 June 2077 at 20:17 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 386 662 km (240 261 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 667 km (229 700 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 5 June 2077 at 23:08 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 June 2077 at 21:39 in ♊ Gemini.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 24 May 2077 at 22:23 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.836°. Next day 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.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
