Crescent ♋ Cancer
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1797" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2056 after 13 days on 27 June 2056 at 09:47.
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 07:04 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 698 of Meeus index or 1651 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 16 minutes is the length of new lunation 698. It is 1 hour and 48 minutes longer than next lunation 699 length.
Length of current synodic month is 32 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 31 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠222.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠255.1°. 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°).
4 days after point of apogee on 9 June 2056 at 08:50 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 June 2056 at 03:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 398 787 km (247 795 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 147 km (225 649 mi).
12 days after its descending node on 1 June 2056 at 02:08 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 June 2056 at 14:37 in ♋ Cancer.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
13 days after previous South standstill on 31 May 2056 at 08:32 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.964°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.004° in the next northern standstill on 14 June 2056 at 20:08 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
