Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1899" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2028 after 14 days on 6 July 2028 at 18:11.
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 18:27 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 352 of Meeus index or 1305 from Brown series.
29 days, 8 hours and 34 minutes is the length of new lunation 352. It is 52 minutes longer than next lunation 353 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 59 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠308.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠330.4°. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 14 June 2028 at 04:46 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 26 June 2028 at 04:14 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 377 478 km (234 554 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 533 km (227 753 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 10 June 2028 at 02:18 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 June 2028 at 06:42 in ♋ Cancer.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 21 June 2028 at 22:15 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.920°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.933° in the next southern standstill on 4 July 2028 at 18:46 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
