Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 30 May 2094 at 00:58.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1947" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2094 after 26 days on 28 June 2094 at 09:58.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1167 of Meeus index or 2120 from Brown series.
Length of current 1167 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 39 minutes shorter than next lunation 1168 length.
Length of current synodic month is 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠74.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠109.9°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 21 May 2094 at 19:13 in ♌ Leo. 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 2 June 2094 at 22:20 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 368 156 km (228 762 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 459 km (228 328 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 01:35 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 14 June 2094 at 04:44 in ♋ Cancer.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 08:45 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-23.296°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠23.310° in its northern standstill point on 14 June 2094 at 13:39 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 13 June 2094 at 00:03 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
