Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2026 after 14 days on 29 June 2026 at 23:57.
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 02:54 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 327 of Meeus index or 1280 from Brown series.
29 days, 6 hours and 49 minutes is the length of new lunation 327. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2026. It is 1 hour and 4 minutes shorter than next lunation 328 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠2.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠18°. 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 14 June 2026 at 23:18 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 June 2026 at 07:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.

8 days after its ascending node on 7 June 2026 at 06:19 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 June 2026 at 17:57 in ♌ Leo.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 05:29 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠27.989°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-27.988° in its southern standstill point on 28 June 2026 at 22:06 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
