Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 17 June 2078 at 07:08.
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 about ∠10° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1785" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2078 after 1 day on 25 June 2078 at 10:22.
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 970 of Meeus index or 1923 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 19 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 25 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 44 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠29°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠50.9°.
3 days after point of apogee on 20 June 2078 at 07:41 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 July 2078 at 02:20 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 401 495 km (249 477 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 394 km (227 667 mi).
1 day after descending node on 21 June 2078 at 16:55 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 5 July 2078 at 06:31 in ♉ Taurus.
15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
12 days since the previous standstill on 11 June 2078 at 07:53 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.059°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.037° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 June 2078 at 16:54 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 1 day on 25 June 2078 at 10:22 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
