Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2094 after 25 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 18 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 22:20, this is 12 days after last apogee on 21 May 2094 at 19:13 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 18 June 2094 at 13:22 in ♌ Leo.
This perigee Moon is 367 459 km (228 328 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 951 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 897 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 1 June 2094 at 01:35 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 14 June 2094 at 04:44 in ♋ Cancer.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 1 June 2094 at 08:45 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.296°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.310° in the next northern standstill on 14 June 2094 at 13:39 in ♋ Cancer.
After 10 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.
