Crescent ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1962" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2043 after 15 days on 22 June 2043 at 14:20.
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 10:35 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 537 of Meeus index or 1490 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 16 minutes is the length of new lunation 537. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 538 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠15.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠33.6°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 6 June 2043 at 11:59 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 June 2043 at 23:28 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 365 320 km (226 999 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 646 km (252 057 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 2 June 2043 at 17:02 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 15 June 2043 at 09:52 in ♎ Libra.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 26 May 2043 at 08:52 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.459°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.431° in the next northern standstill on 8 June 2043 at 09:54 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
