Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1835" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2098 after 19 days on 13 July 2098 at 10:35.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 18 June 2098 at 01:07 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 June 2098 at 07:43 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 390 642 km (242 734 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 588 km (223 438 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♈ Aries at 14:19 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 6 July 2098 at 02:56 in ♎ Libra.
At 14:19 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
8 days after previous South standstill on 14 June 2098 at 16:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.153°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.163° in the next northern standstill on 28 June 2098 at 19:01 in ♊ Gemini.
After 5 days on 29 June 2098 at 02:06 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
