Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 7 June 2081 at 09:01.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2081 after 9 days on 21 June 2081 at 07:32.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1007 of Meeus index or 1960 from Brown series.
Length of current 1007 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1008 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠298.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠322.9°. 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 17:00, this is 12 days after last apogee on 30 May 2081 at 09:21 in ♓ Pisces. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 27 June 2081 at 03:39 in ♓ Pisces.
This perigee Moon is 368 270 km (228 832 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 762 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 086 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
10 days after its ascending node on 31 May 2081 at 13:42 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 June 2081 at 20:45 in ♍ Virgo.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 8 June 2081 at 04:25 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.340°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.324° in the next southern standstill on 21 June 2081 at 03:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 9 days on 21 June 2081 at 07:32 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
