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 ∠8° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1778" and ∠1888".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2089.
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 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°).
13 days after point of perigee on 10 June 2089 at 11:59 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 June 2089 at 00:52 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 403 168 km (250 517 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 892 km (252 210 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 16 June 2089 at 22:07 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 July 2089 at 11:25 in ♈ Aries.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 22 June 2089 at 12:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.620°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.574° in the next northern standstill on 6 July 2089 at 18:10 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
