Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 19 June 2086 at 04:33.
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 ∠16° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1842" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2086 after 1 day on 27 June 2086 at 00:04.
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 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 19 June 2086 at 09:56 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 July 2086 at 04:43 in ♓ Pisces.
Moon is 389 192 km (241 833 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 036 km (229 308 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 07:25 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 8 July 2086 at 05:01 in ♊ Gemini.
At 07:25 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
At 15:51 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-22.460°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠22.447° in its northern standstill point on 8 July 2086 at 14:01 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day 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.
