Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 11 June 2086 at 11:12.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1787" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2086 after 10 days on 27 June 2086 at 00:04.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1069 of Meeus index or 2022 from Brown series.
Length of current 1069 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 50 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes shorter than next lunation 1070 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 54 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 15 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠62.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠95.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
9 days after point of perigee on 7 June 2086 at 01:37 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 June 2086 at 09:56 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 401 180 km (249 282 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 212 km (251 166 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 10 June 2086 at 21:57 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 June 2086 at 07:25 in ♐ Sagittarius.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 11 June 2086 at 06:00 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.467°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.460° in the next southern standstill on 25 June 2086 at 15:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 10 days on 27 June 2086 at 00:04 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
