Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 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 first ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2083 after 16 days on 29 June 2083 at 16:51.
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 27 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 12 June 2083 at 22:19 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 June 2083 at 06:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 405 468 km (251 946 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 069 km (223 737 mi).
9 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 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 June 2083 at 01:15 in ♌ Leo.
9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 1 June 2083 at 05:43 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.909°. Next day 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 1 day 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.
