Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 8 June 2089 at 18:44.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1956" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2089 after 13 days on 23 June 2089 at 00:07.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1106 of Meeus index or 2059 from Brown series.
Length of current 1106 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 3 minutes. It is 23 minutes longer than next lunation 1107 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 41 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 28 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠331.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠348.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
11 days after point of apogee on 29 May 2089 at 11:27 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 June 2089 at 11:59 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 366 421 km (227 683 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 317 km (224 512 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 4 June 2089 at 08:00 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 June 2089 at 22:07 in ♎ Libra.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 06:40 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.600°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.620° in its southern standstill point on 22 June 2089 at 12:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 13 days on 23 June 2089 at 00:07 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
