The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2094.
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 1168 of Meeus index or 2121 from Brown series.
Length of current 1168 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 1169 length.
Length of current synodic month is 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠109.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠141.9°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 18 June 2094 at 13:22 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 30 June 2094 at 11:51 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 370 040 km (229 932 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 474 km (225 231 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♑ Capricorn at 10:31 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 11 July 2094 at 11:47 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 17:52 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-23.311°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠23.299° in its northern standstill point on 11 July 2094 at 20:37 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
