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.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2089 after 12 days on 23 June 2089 at 00:07.
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 2 days 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 11:59, this is 12 days after last apogee on 29 May 2089 at 11:27 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 26 June 2089 at 00:52 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 361 317 km (224 512 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 191 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 039 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
6 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 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 June 2089 at 22:07 in ♎ Libra.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 9 June 2089 at 06:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.600°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.620° in the next southern standstill on 22 June 2089 at 12:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 12 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.
