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 ∠17° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1891".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2088.
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 1093 of Meeus index or 2046 from Brown series.
Length of current 1093 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 5 minutes. It is 20 minutes longer than next lunation 1094 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 39 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 30 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠348.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠3.5°. 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°).
14 days after point of perigee on 21 May 2088 at 11:25 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 June 2088 at 01:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 405 421 km (251 917 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 311 km (252 470 mi).
3 days after its ascending node on 1 June 2088 at 03:13 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 15 June 2088 at 12:42 in ♉ Taurus.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 21:46 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-19.441°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠19.431° in its northern standstill point on 18 June 2088 at 14:44 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
