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 ∠1770" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2030 after 14 days on 15 June 2030 at 18:41.
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 06:21 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 376 of Meeus index or 1329 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 13 minutes is the length of new lunation 376. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes longer than next lunation 377 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 34 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠189°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠213.7°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 31 May 2030 at 06:14 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 June 2030 at 23:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 404 965 km (251 634 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 183 km (222 565 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 17:30 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 15 June 2030 at 05:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 20:22 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.730°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.735° in its southern standstill point on 15 June 2030 at 07:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
