Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 6 June 2098 at 09:45.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1889" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2098 after 4 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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 2 June 2098 at 05:57 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 June 2098 at 01:07 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 379 505 km (235 813 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 408 km (251 909 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♎ Libra at 01:58 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 23 June 2098 at 14:19 in ♈ Aries.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
8 days after previous North standstill on 1 June 2098 at 09:59 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.197°. Next 5 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 4 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.
