Moon* ♊ Gemini
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2096 after 15 days on 6 June 2096 at 02:58.
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 17:43 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1191 of Meeus index or 2144 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 52 minutes is the length of new lunation 1191. It is 16 minutes longer than next lunation 1192 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 11:28, this is 14 days after last apogee on 7 May 2096 at 00:36 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 3 June 2096 at 06:22 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 357 865 km (222 367 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 643 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 491 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♉ Taurus at 23:32 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 4 June 2096 at 19:21 in ♏ Scorpio.
At 23:32 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
9 days after previous South standstill on 11 May 2096 at 18:46 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.364°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.358° in the next northern standstill on 24 May 2096 at 13:59 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
