Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 23 June 2083 at 02:52.
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 ∠20° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2083 after 1 day 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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1032 of Meeus index or 1985 from Brown series.
Length of current 1032 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 17 minutes. It is 1 hour and 26 minutes longer than next lunation 1033 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 30 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠203.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠232°. 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 06:42, this is 15 days after last apogee on 12 June 2083 at 22:19 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 10 July 2083 at 10:51 in ♉ Taurus.
This perigee Moon is 360 069 km (223 737 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 439 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 287 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after its descending node on 19 June 2083 at 01:15 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 July 2083 at 19:10 in ♒ Aquarius.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 15:42 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-26.916°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠26.931° in its northern standstill point on 12 July 2083 at 11:43 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 29 June 2083 at 16:51 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
