Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1888".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 2097.
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 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 09:04, this is 13 days after last perigee on 10 June 2097 at 09:12 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 8 July 2097 at 18:43 in ♋ Cancer.
This apogee Moon is 406 338 km (252 487 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2097. It is 930 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 371 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
4 days after its descending node on 20 June 2097 at 09:05 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 July 2097 at 19:44 in ♉ Taurus.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 11 June 2097 at 04:55 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.467°. Next day 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.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
