Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 7 June 2083 at 06:29.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2083 after 17 days on 29 June 2083 at 16:51.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1031 of Meeus index or 1984 from Brown series.
Length of current 1031 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 24 minutes. It is 1 hour and 7 minutes longer than next lunation 1032 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 40 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 23 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠180.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠203.8°. 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 apogee on this date at 22:19, this is 12 days after last perigee on 30 May 2083 at 23:07 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 28 June 2083 at 06:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This apogee Moon is 406 337 km (252 486 mi) away from Earth. It is 929 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 372 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
8 days after its ascending node on 4 June 2083 at 11:34 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 June 2083 at 01:15 in ♌ Leo.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 1 June 2083 at 05:43 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.909°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.886° in the next northern standstill on 15 June 2083 at 05:35 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 days on 15 June 2083 at 09:37 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
