Gibbous ♐ Sagittarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 8 June 2087 at 02:45.
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 ∠22° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2087 after 2 days on 16 June 2087 at 06:58.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1081 of Meeus index or 2034 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 52 minutes. It is 57 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 17 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠19°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠37.8°.
1 day after point of apogee on 12 June 2087 at 06:07 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 28 June 2087 at 01:08 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 405 107 km (251 722 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 14 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 598 km (225 929 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 18:16 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 27 June 2087 at 08:36 in ♉ Taurus.
At 18:16 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
11 days since the previous standstill on 1 June 2087 at 14:09 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.809°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.814° at the point of next southern standstill on 15 June 2087 at 17:46 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 2 days on 16 June 2087 at 06:58 in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
