Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 30 May 2098 at 18:23.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2098 after 11 days on 13 June 2098 at 20:25.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1217 of Meeus index or 2170 from Brown series.
Length of current 1217 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 43 minutes. It is 58 minutes longer than next lunation 1218 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠320.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠339.4°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 05:57, this is 11 days after last apogee on 21 May 2098 at 09:03 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 18 June 2098 at 01:07 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 363 988 km (226 172 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 480 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 368 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
6 days after its ascending node on 27 May 2098 at 09:11 in ♈ Aries, 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 9 June 2098 at 01:58 in ♎ Libra.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 1 June 2098 at 09:59 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.197°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.153° in the next southern standstill on 14 June 2098 at 16:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 11 days on 13 June 2098 at 20:25 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
