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 ∠20° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1890".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2093.
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 1155 of Meeus index or 2108 from Brown series.
Length of current 1155 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 57 minutes. It is 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 1156 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠142°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠167.5°. 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°).
11 days after point of apogee on 28 May 2093 at 21:26 in ♋ Cancer. 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 2093 at 08:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 365 078 km (226 849 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 605 km (222 827 mi).
10 days after its ascending node on 29 May 2093 at 14:36 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 June 2093 at 20:52 in ♑ Capricorn.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous North standstill on 28 May 2093 at 08:03 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.600°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.625° in the next southern standstill on 10 June 2093 at 21:56 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
