Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 10 June 2097 at 02:13.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1947" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2097 after 11 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 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1205 of Meeus index or 2158 from Brown series.
Length of current 1205 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 44 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2097. It is 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 1206 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠355.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10°. 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°).
3 days after point of perigee on 10 June 2097 at 09:12 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 June 2097 at 09:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 368 189 km (228 782 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 338 km (252 487 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 7 June 2097 at 13:23 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 20 June 2097 at 09:05 in ♏ Scorpio.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 11 June 2097 at 04:55 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.467°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.434° in the next southern standstill on 25 June 2097 at 00:31 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 11 days on 24 June 2097 at 19:03 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
