Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1799" and ∠1889".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2087.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1081 of Meeus index or 2034 from Brown series.
Length of current 1081 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 52 minutes. It is 57 minutes shorter than next lunation 1082 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠19°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠37.8°. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 12 June 2087 at 06:07 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 June 2087 at 01:08 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 398 507 km (247 621 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 598 km (225 929 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 13 June 2087 at 18:16 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 June 2087 at 08:36 in ♉ Taurus.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 15 June 2087 at 17:46 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.814°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.796° in the next northern standstill on 29 June 2087 at 00:49 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
