Crescent ♊ Gemini
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1965" and ∠1895".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2096 after 14 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 01:35 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1192 of Meeus index or 2145 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 36 minutes is the length of new lunation 1192. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2096. It is 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 1193 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.7°. 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 21 May 2096 at 11:28 in ♉ Taurus. 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 3 June 2096 at 06:22 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 364 759 km (226 651 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 888 km (252 207 mi).
1 day after its ascending node on 21 May 2096 at 23:32 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 June 2096 at 19:21 in ♏ Scorpio.
1 day after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 11 May 2096 at 18:46 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.364°. Next 2 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.
