Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 9 June 2095 at 23:02.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1821" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2095 after 1 day on 17 June 2095 at 22:05.
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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1180 of Meeus index or 2133 from Brown series.
Length of current 1180 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour and 38 minutes shorter than next lunation 1181 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠47.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76.3°. 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 11 June 2095 at 06:34 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 June 2095 at 17:27 in ♈ Aries.
Moon is 393 640 km (244 597 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 538 km (229 620 mi).
13 days after its ascending node on 2 June 2095 at 21:43 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 June 2095 at 07:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 4 June 2095 at 12:12 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.917°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.916° in the next southern standstill on 18 June 2095 at 23:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day on 17 June 2095 at 22:05 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
