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 ∠1888" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2019 after 13 days on 17 June 2019 at 08:31.
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 10:02 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 240 of Meeus index or 1193 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 14 minutes is the length of new lunation 240. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes longer than next lunation 241 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 30 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 39 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠296.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠321.4°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 26 May 2019 at 13:27 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 June 2019 at 23:21 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 379 662 km (235 911 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 508 km (228 980 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 22 May 2019 at 19:12 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 5 June 2019 at 22:46 in ♋ Cancer.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
12 days after previous South standstill on 22 May 2019 at 06:41 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.313°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.361° in the next northern standstill on 5 June 2019 at 12:58 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
