Moon ♊ Gemini
Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1836" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2002 after 14 days on 24 June 2002 at 21:42.
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 23:47 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 30 of Meeus index or 983 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 40 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 5 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
The true anomaly is ∠268.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠300.4°.
5 days after point of apogee on 4 June 2002 at 12:58 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 June 2002 at 07:24 in ♎ Libra.
The Moon is 390 302 km (242 522 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 308 km (229 477 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♊ Gemini at 20:00 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 23 June 2002 at 18:39 in ♐ Sagittarius.
At 20:00 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
12 days since the previous standstill on 29 May 2002 at 02:39 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.056°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.058° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 June 2002 at 14:17 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
