Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 3 June 2097 at 06:11.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1942" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2097 after 17 days on 24 June 2097 at 19:03.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1204 of Meeus index or 2157 from Brown series.
Length of current 1204 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 34 minutes. It is 50 minutes longer than next lunation 1205 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 59 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠339.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠355.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
10 days after point of apogee on 28 May 2097 at 05:57 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 June 2097 at 09:12 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 369 172 km (229 393 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 390 km (222 072 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 13:23 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 20 June 2097 at 09:05 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 13:23 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
9 days after previous South standstill on 28 May 2097 at 19:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.488°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.467° in the next northern standstill on 11 June 2097 at 04:55 in ♋ Cancer.
After 2 days on 10 June 2097 at 02:13 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
