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 ∠23° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1923" and ∠1892".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2091.
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 1130 of Meeus index or 2083 from Brown series.
Length of current 1130 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 34 minutes. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes longer than next lunation 1131 length.
Length of current synodic month is 50 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 13 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠214.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠245.7°. 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 30 May 2091 at 19:30 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 June 2091 at 19:05 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 372 698 km (231 584 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 966 km (251 634 mi).
7 days after its ascending node on 26 May 2091 at 06:27 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 June 2091 at 23:53 in ♒ Aquarius.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 21 May 2091 at 13:53 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.883°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.930° in the next southern standstill on 3 June 2091 at 09:48 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
