Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1781" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2030 after 14 days on 15 July 2030 at 02:12.
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 21:34 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 377 of Meeus index or 1330 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 37 minutes is the length of new lunation 377. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer than next lunation 378 length.
Length of current synodic month is 52 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠213.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠244.5°. 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 27 June 2030 at 14:14 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 July 2030 at 05:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 402 356 km (250 012 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 792 km (224 807 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 28 June 2030 at 23:50 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 July 2030 at 14:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 29 June 2030 at 02:45 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.734°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.706° in the next southern standstill on 12 July 2030 at 17:53 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
