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 ∠1936" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2027 after 14 days on 19 June 2027 at 00:44.
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 19:40 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 339 of Meeus index or 1292 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 22 minutes is the length of new lunation 339. It is 19 minutes longer than next lunation 340 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 22 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 47 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠330.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠347.4°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 25 May 2027 at 15:13 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 June 2027 at 14:54 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 370 162 km (230 008 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 703 km (224 752 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 26 May 2027 at 15:22 in ♒ Aquarius, 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 8 June 2027 at 19:23 in ♌ Leo.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
13 days after previous South standstill on 22 May 2027 at 08:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.162°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.143° in the next northern standstill on 5 June 2027 at 10:02 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
