Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1955" and ∠1887".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2083.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 28 June 2083 at 06:42 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 July 2083 at 10:51 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 366 603 km (227 797 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 424 km (251 919 mi).
10 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 July 2083 at 19:10 in ♒ Aquarius.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 28 June 2083 at 15:42 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.916°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.931° in the next northern standstill on 12 July 2083 at 11:43 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
