Crescent ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1793" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2005 after 14 days on 22 June 2005 at 04:14.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 21:55 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 67 of Meeus index or 1020 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 7 minutes is the length of new lunation 67. It is 55 minutes shorter than next lunation 68 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 23 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 40 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠131.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠158.8°. 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°).
12 days after point of perigee on 26 May 2005 at 10:43 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 June 2005 at 06:11 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 399 844 km (248 452 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 506 km (251 970 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 2 June 2005 at 15:14 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 June 2005 at 03:59 in ♎ Libra.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 25 May 2005 at 23:03 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.270°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.224° in the next northern standstill on 8 June 2005 at 07:36 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
